Tomomi Nishizawa

Born in Tokyo, Japan.

Tomomi Nishizawa has mainly focused on the relationship among beauty and medical practices and how these modern technologies manifest the appearance of the body and skin, exploring the fictionality of both fields conceptually.

Nowadays, beauty and cosmetics have become inseparable from medicine and medical treatments in our society; they are not considered to be a secondary processing of the innate body, but are instead seen as a process that accompanies the act of acquiring one’s true self.

Tomomi Nishizawa’s work manipulates such interventions on the body at a figurative and conceptual level and questions our own boundaries. Works that are sometimes presented with a different kind of beauty not only remain in a critical position, but rather illuminates the truth of beauty and medical practice by opening the new path to expand the new concept.
