Tsuda Michiko - Artist

津田 道子

The works of artist Tsuda Michiko take a variety of forms including installation, performance, and video. She completed a Doctoral Program in Film and New Media Studies at the Graduate School of Film and New Media, Tokyo University of the Arts in 2013 and received a grant from the Asian Cultural Council (ACC) for a 6-month residency in New York in 2019. Exhibitions include the solo show ‘Trilogue’ (TARO NASU, Tokyo, 2020), the group exhibitions ‘Inter+Play: Arts Towada 10th Anniversary Exhibition Part 1’ (Towada Art Center, Aomori), ‘Aichi Triennale 2019’ and ‘Roppongi Crossing 2019: Connexions’ (Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, 2019).


A common theme running through her work is the examination of the volatility of human perception and how that perception can be manipulated to alter one’s understanding of space and time.


As part of the Windowology: New Architectural Views from Japan exhibition, Tsuda has created a site-specific installation entitled ‘You would come over here to see you again shortly’. By distorting the boundaries between the streetscape and interior and projecting images into unexpected places, the piece is designed to alter the perception of space and create a labyrinthine visual experience. The installation is available to enjoy at Japan House London until 24 April 2022.
