杉山有希子 / Yukiko SUGIYAMA

Born in 1985, lives and works in Kyoto, Japan. 

2011 MFA in sculpture course in Kanazawa College of Art, Ishikawa.
The work, shot with a near-infrared camera, not only highlights the material differences between man-made objects and living things, but also contrasts the “products of the past”, which are destined to decay with “life” that lives in the present. Despite its truthfulness, it creates a dystopian world like science fiction. The theme of this work is to share a scene that leads to the next world as a landscape of new relationships.
