HARUMI Yonekawa|米川温美

Lives and works in Tokyo.

HARUMI Yonekawa has explored various lens-based media such as photography and sculpture for her installations since the early 90’s, and has developed an in-depth understanding and pursuing relationships between the existence of the body and the possibilities of the reality.

Since the early 90’s, HARUMI Yonekawa has been creating a series of installations called “COEXISTENCE OF INSIDE”. Her works combine visual image(self portrait), sculpture and sometime using soil, water or daily products, creates her art musing on our fundamental issues, for example, “Body and death” and “Existence and unconsciousness”. She employs her body itself and biographical elements through questions of identity, origin, existence and reality for her works.

For several years of her silence, recently she has started new project which will be showing new works.
