Born in Tokyo, growing up in London and currently residing in Berlin, Mari Matsutoya’s work often reflects on the mediation between these cultures and languages and focuses on the miscommunication that occurs in their transfer from one to the other.
Having first studied German literature at King’s College London and then going on to study fine art and sound studies at the University of Arts Berlin, her focus is on language as a mirror to reality and as a medium that sits right on the fence between the visual and the sonic. One of the threads that can be traced throughout her work is the voice as expressive medium and social instrument. Previous shows and performances include Tokyo Wonder Site, General Public and Arndt Berlin.
