ARTIST INFO

Kirico

Kirico

Kirico is a photographer and video artist born in 1978 in Kyoto. Documenting her families and spouses through photographs and videos, Kirico reveals with sensitivity, the intimate relationships she beholds with those she is deeply related to. Here, the distinction between the self and the artist is lost, and although it may be a documentary through the eyes of one particular woman, the raw lives of those documented appear through the photographer’s conflicting standpoint of urgency and objectivity, which thus become a universal language to stimulate the viewers mind.
