Yoko Mazuki(1963 - )


Born 1963 in Aichi Prefecture, Japan.She has exhibited in galleries and art spaces throughout Japan, using photography to express the time, presence and smells captured by the skin's sense of touch with self-portraits in the old Japanese house where she was born, and the 'inner planets' that are innate to the human body. She also began producing video works during her stay in Düsseldorf, Germany, in 2002. In 2003, she presented a video installation at the Nagoya City Art Museum, and has since expanded her activities to include music, performance and video production of theatre.
