Hanako Murakami

Born 1984, Tokyo, Japan.
Lives and works in Paris, France.
After receiving her MA from the Tokyo University of the Arts, Hanako Murakami moved to France, where she joined Le Fresnoy, national studio of contemporary art. Many of her works are produced based on an in-depth research of historical media, such as alternative photographic techniques or letterpress printing. As such, she concludes in 2018 a residency at the Getty Research Institute (Los Angeles) and Georges Eastman Museum (New York). Her major exhibitions include VOCA, Ueno Royal Museum, Tokyo, 2017; Ma Samaritaine, Paris, 2017; and also solo exhibitions in Tokyo such as ANTICAMERA (OF THE EYE), Taka Ishii Gallery, 2016 and The Capital Room, Gallery αM, 2015.
