Eriko Mukai creates performance works that are based on phenomena existing in nature and society. She dismantles images attached to phenomena and reconstructs the mechanism of the phenomenon as systems consisting of objects and actions. She abstracts and operates the three-dimensionalized devices. However, with reconstructed performance, there is no direct indication of what motif it is. How to respond and what kind of attitude will be taken in limited information from your own position against objects whose conclusion is unknown. What she is doing through work creation is an approach to such issues that we often encounter in society.

During the residency in Helsinki, I will create "Approach" series that is a performance that uses structures that visualize social systems.
I research the mechanism of the system related to labor and consumption of living, such as supermarket, choose a motif and assemble the structure. __Eriko Mukai
