Miya Kaneko uses topography as a means of investigating the relationship of people and place, creating works that bring the viewer within reach of nonexistent cities. In addition to presenting her work, the artist will conduct a workshop where participants engage in discussion, following their “memories of place” and making notations on a map. By linking together these notations and tracing their own path, the participants will discover a self-portrait that reaches back through their own memories.


Miya Kaneko

Born in Kanagawa Prefecture in 1989. In 2017 she completed the doctorate program at Tama Art University’s Graduate School of Art and Design and received her Ph.D. in art. She has been holding exhibitions that seek a “portrait of the city” using the memories and images people derive from the city name. Among her exhibitions in recent years are her one man exhibition “Miya Kaneko Exhibition: Seeking a Portrait of the City” (Komagomei 1-14cas/ Tokyo, 2016) and “JIGUM Exhibition” (Art District_p, Busan, South Korea).
