Hiroko Inoue

Born in Osaka, lives in Nara/JAP, Berlin, Mühlheim/D

Studied fabrics in Okinawa from 1974 to 1975. After seeing the devastating aftermath of Hanshin-Awaji Earthquakes, she started incorporating the concept of life and death into her works, leading to such pieces as "Contemporary Art Outdoors" and "A Memory of Soul". Hiroko Inoue has been based in both Germany and Japan as she is primarily captivated by the correlation between how we see ourselves in relation to others and how environmental/social factors mould the invisible boundaries amongst individuals. Her long and prolific career and artistic impressions have ranged from painting, photography, site-specific installation, photography and videos. In 2005, Inoue spent a year in Vienna as a cultural ambassador for the Agency of Cultural Affairs. During that period, she held six exhibitions as well as numerous workshops and lectures to introduce Japanese culture.
