BIOGRAPHY 

    Born in 1988, Kinu Kamura is a young French-Japanese artist. She spent most of her studies abroad between Tokyo, Paris and London. She attended the Parsons School Paris, and got graduated from the Central Saint Martins in 2011. After her degree, Paris is finally the place where the artist decides to settle. She discovers and works in different field such as digital marketing for luxury brands and film production.  All these experiences have inspired her artistic process and make it what it is today.

 Even if some of her early work show the use of colors and narrative shapes, the artist has always been attracted to minimal aesthetics, creating simple installations using mostly raw and sober materials. Alongside, exploring and analyzing the making process of the artwork has always played a major role in the evolution of her body of work. Documented and recorded, it almost becomes a work in itself.  It allows to capture, not only, the process but also the context surrounding this specific moment and place where ideas birth and are materialized. 

 Through out various mediums, she is looking to achieve the perfect combination where the artwork, its making process and its context of exhibition would merge and become one. 
 Unfolding the creative journey and mechanics of exhibition is an attempt to understand where lie the artwork's meaning and value in the contemporary art world and market.
