Miku Satoʼs practice is based on her fieldwork of specific places, where she starts up a project delegating her intention to the local people she selects. Through video, installation and peopleʼs participatory action, she explores new perspectives and alternative possibility of relationship between individuals and the world as well as passivity and proactivity in society. Her quest is to compose her own new narratives to retell the past and present together under a different light.
Born in Japan in 1985, Miku Sato received her Bachelor in Painting from Musashino Art University, Tokyo in 2009, and completed her Master of Film and New Media Studies from Tokyo University of the Arts in 2019. In 2013, she was a guest resident of Matadero Madrid in Spain, as an exchange artist of Tokyo Arts and Space. In 2016, she was selected to participate in GoneWest collaborating with Het Entrepot in Brugge, Belgium. In 2017, she was also selected to participate in Port Journeys in Frise Künstlerhaus, Hamburg, Germany. She currently works in the Netherlands supported by Japanese Government Overseas Study Programme for Artists.
