Residents / ARCUS Project / Hospitalfield Exchange 2019

  • Tomoko Sato

    ARCUS Project / Hospitalfield Exchange 2019

    Born in Nagano in 1990. Lives and works in Kanagawa. Sato obtained her Master of Fine Arts in Film and New Media from Tokyo University of the Arts in 2018.

    Making use of a lecture format, Sato’s practice focuses on narratives. By linking issues that arise in the process of investigating historical facts in a multifaceted way, Sato constructs a story that interweaves fiction and documentary. Sato’s works are the product of her interest in Japan’s pursuit of a distorted form of modernization and the plurality conveyed by events that have fallen through the cracks of History with a capital H as well as her attraction to legends and ruins that survive in various places.
