BIOGRAPHY

TOMOMI NISHIZAWA

Tomomi Nishizawa, while focusing on the theme of beauty/medicine, has treated the expression of the body and skin, which are the targets of these modern techniques, and their fiction as a fundamental concept in her recent works.

Nowadays, beauty and cosmetics have become inseparable from medicine and medical treatments in our society, they are not considered to be secondary processing of the innate body, but they are even perceived as an act of acquiring one’s true self.Nishizawa‘s artworks pursue the physical beauty by intervening at a figurative and ideological level, and also questions the boundaries.Sometimes presented with another kind of beauty, the works illuminate the truth of cosmetic/medical practice and opens a horizon that extends its concept, rather than simply staying in a critical position.

As her main representative artworks, she has a spatial installation work called “Natural Make Up” (Art Front Gallery Tokyo / 2014), which merges make-up tools and medical instruments, and transforms the make-up room into an operating room; and a huge sculpture that merges the eyelash curler and the forceps (BLOCK HOUSE Tokyo / 2016).

Moreover, in the last couple of years, she is not only presenting her art works in galleries, but also she works on a variety of fields such as fashion magazines, art director for booths and visual production.
