1966 Born in Tokyo; currently residing in London
After moving to Britain in 1989 and earning a Master’s degree in Fine Arts at Goldsmiths College, University of London, Yokomizo continued her artwork with a focus on photography and video. Among her productions are photographic works that structurally incorporate the action of “seeing,” and videos on the topics of time and the body. In recent years she has been investigating the relationship between images and people.
