Kyoko Takemura (b.1992) is a Japanese multidisciplinary artist and designer mainly working in photography and animation. Takemura’s work shines a light on the hidden truths in objects, searching beyond their common functions for perspectives that remain unknown or ignored by a public audience.
Guided by an interest in the precarious nature of survival, her practice encourages the audience to reflect on what it means to be human, and the consequences of man’s inventions. Her subjects explore the universal issues shared beyond language barriers or ethnic classifications.
She is a Central Saint Martins BA Graphic Design graduate.
She lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
