A multidisciplinary poet who works with performance, sound, photographs, painting, text, objects and moving image.
Her shows have been called “still life”, containing at times marginal movements and elements of theatre - through a series of works such as Solo Clubbing, in which Kaori Yoshikawa engages with food that she finds distasteful or nauseous, the Invasion / Trespass series that sees Kaori Yoshikawa negotiating with the act of simultaneously dressing and undressing, or Kaori Does Her Own Plumbing, in which Kaori Yoshikawa practises synchronized writing with both hands.
Making irregular appearances are sound pieces from her No Loitering field recording series which is based on the idea of otomore (Japanese): sounds that leak from others’ domain into ours. From otomore of personal headphones and live houses to arguments and conversations in public city spaces that enter our ears, we find ourselves facing invasion. When these sounds are recorded, the line between invasion and trespass becomes blurred and the sounds themselves become suspended and isolated from ownership.
