BIOGRAPHY

Hiromi Miyakita is a dancer and visual artist living in Kyotango, Japan. After graduating from the department of dance at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, she started her dance career in Japan in the latter half of the 1990s. Miyakita’s practice works with the concept of ‘dance through stillness’, and the motion of the human body when considered as an object rather than as a living being. This leads her to start experimenting with an improvised performance and visual arts. Since 2011, Miyakita has continued to work on site-specific performances such as with Akio Suzuki, and her most recently performances include Kinosaki International Art Center(2016), Okayama Prefectural Art Museum (Okayama, 2015) and the Imago Dei Festival (Krems, 2017). She has applied her own sense of space and time to visual art since 2012, and presented installations such as ‘Permanent Red’ (MEDIA SHOP, Kyoto, 2015) and ‘point A ⇄ point B’ (ozasahayashi_project, Kyoto, 2016). Since 2014, Miyakita has organized and participated in ART CAMP TANGO as a curator and artist.
