KIOTO AOKI

MARK SHERIDAN MATH & SCIENCE ACADEMY

BENITO JUAREZ COMMUNITY ACADEMY (IN PROGRESS)

Kioto Aoki is a visual artist whose practice includes photography, film, books and installations to engage the material specificity of the analogue image and image-making process. Using the nuances of time, space, form, light and motion, her work explores different modes of perception as it relates to the space between the still and the moving image. Her work also explores the photographic and cinematic interpretations of the body in space and includes a series of dance-movement films. She has exhibited and screened in Chicago, Berlin, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London and Japan. Her work is held in Joan Flasch Artists’ Book Collection and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago Library. Kioto received her MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is currently an artist in resident for HATCH Projects at the Chicago Artists Coalition.
