Biography

Profile

1987年、大阪生まれ。日本人の母とイギリス人の父を持つ。現在、東京藝術大学大学院博士前期課程在籍中。幼少期より、自身の中にある好奇心旺盛な部分と自身を俯瞰している部分の二面性を感じていた作家は、「トミモとあきな」と表記して作品を発表している。よって二人組ではない。西洋人の外見と、日本人の内面のコントラストによる作家の屈折を作品の魅力としている。

現在は、写真作品を中心にメディアを問わず「記憶との出会い」をテーマに作品制作している。脳は平気で嘘をつく。自身の記憶に騙されながらも共有する何かを信じ合って人々は生きている。同じものを見ても同じようには見えない。作品との出会いから新しい物語が構築されていくことを目的に制作している。

 

Contemporary artist and photographer who produces mixed media, paintings and performance works mainly on photographic works. In addition, she is also active as a logo designer who specializes in organizing and expressing images and concepts of objects or companies.

Born in Osaka Prefecture in 1987. A daughter of a Japanese mother and an English father, who were divorced soon after her birth. Currently living in Tokyo, she is enrolled in master's program at Tokyo University of the Arts.

From the early childhood, the artist has been very aware of her external appearance as a mixed -race individual (or“ha-fu” in Japanese) as her family lived on the country side of Osaka, where her neighborhood consisted of only Japanese families. Because of her Western appearance and Japanese identity, she has been seeing the world through two different perspectives, which are reflected on her artworks. Her artist name, TOMIMO+AKINA is also a reflection of her unique multi-viewpoints. It represents her dilemma of growing up as“ha-fu”in rural Japan, having two perspectives, but she is an individual artist.

She currently works mainly on photographic works, no matter what media are. Her works are based on the themes “Encounter with memory”. Our brains are designed to tell lies based on past experiences. While being deceived by their own memories, people believe that something shared the most is the truth. Your sense organs receive the same information but you do no see the same thing. She produces her artworks to create multiple views of the world for those who encounter her art pieces.
