Sakiko Yamaoka

Sakiko Yamaoka (Japapan,1961)
With an underlying concern for performance art as a fateful process in undertaking the body as a single site or node, Sakiko Yamaoka is an artist who utilizes performance art, moving image, photography and drawing(painting). Her creative practice has investigated sculptures of time, individual delusions, and the questioning of public space.
Since her participation in the Singapore Art festival of Fringe (organized by The Artist Village ,1992), she has taken part in numerous performance art festivals in more than 22 countries across Europe and North/South America and Asia. In 2000 she organized the event “Performance Art!” in The University Museum, Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. She went on to undertake 6 months of research into performance art in Europe hosted by E. P. I. Zentrum (Cologne, Germany) with the support of the Japan Foundation (2004). Following this she presented her work in “National Review of Live Art” (Glasgow, U.K., 2007). In 2010 and 2012, she participated in the Tokyo based art project ”Dislocate” and created a performance series tackling public space. She created moving image work examining the relation between individual desires in “Curitiba Biennale” (Brazil, 2013). In 2016 she founded the Independent Performance Artists Moving Images Archive (IPAMIA).
