Japanese artist Tsuneko Taniuchi set out to expose the inherent failings of modern capitalist cultures, focussing particularly on the social, political, and cultural circumstances of women in the late 20th century. Using a combination of video, photography, installation and performance, Taniuchi played with our confusion around reality and art to promote women’s liberation from a world in which male power continues to reign. Tsuneko Taniuchi was an artist-in-residence for 3 months.
Tsuneko Taniuchi was born in Hyôgo, in Japan. She lives and works in Paris since 1987.
