Kimiko Yoshida

Artist/photographer Kimiko Yoshida constructs her self-portraits on the basis of an intense dialogue between minimalist, baroque, anthropological and ethnographical elements.
Her photographic works represent a voyage through time and history but especially a reflection on the condition of women in the past and of the contemporary one.
Through a re-interpretation of cultural stereotypes and feminine archetypes, the artist seeks to dissolve her own personal identity so as to grasp the universality of existence.
Her often monochrome works evoke expectation and frailty. The figure melting into the background is intended as a metaphor of the annulment of the ego in favor of a universal identity.
Her investigation is influenced by the Japanese aesthetic, in particular by the sensitive use of light, and by baroque art that artist encountered once in Europe.
