As a Japanese visual artist.
so far, Mumuko has traveled to more than 50 countries around the world.
In recent years, she has been active in shooting photo projects in Argentina,
the Amazon jungle, and other places in South America.
As a young artist, Mumuko's works won many important international awards
And were exhibited in museum and galleries in
London, New York, Sydney and other cities abroad.
I think that whether I go to the Amazon jungle to be around local tribes,
or go to Turkey to face wars and conflicts,
I just want to increase depth and expand my personal understanding of life.
Like the symbols I talk about I am the roads I have traveled, the complex of stories.
Various cultural symbols grow savagely in my body, struggling and colliding,
Bloom a unique flower without borders.
What I want to do is to look beyond the people's 「roles」
and explore the 「1% self」 of real human nature.
