b. 1988, Tokyo. Lives and works in Tokyo, Japan.
In her work, Aya Momose uses video to represent the issue related to one’s voice and body. Against a backdrop of contemporary society, flooded as it is with digital video, she asks what these images really are and urges us to reconsider the act and experience of watching them. Gestures, voices, and dialogues of actors are key elements of her work, expressing the misalignment that interrupt the establishment of relations and communication with others and ultimately exposing the violence and immorality contained in the act of shooting videos.
Momose has had a number of gallery and museum exhibitions, including at the National Art Center in Tokyo and the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul. She will take part in Artist Residency in New York in 2017.
