studio YUKA OYAMA
Yuka Oyama is a Japanese-German artist who grew up in Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, USA and Germany. She lives and works in Berlin. Oyama’s artistic practice incorporates sculpture, jewellery, video, photography, public interventions, choreographic experimentations and performances. Her life-sized, critical costumes that she calls person-thing-hybrids function as material provocations that explore the disconnections often felt in contemporary life: the degeneration of human-to-human emotional communication and an increasingly eroded sense of belonging. Everyday objects are used to upset these disconnections, facilitating our ability to act beyond set conventions.
