Born in Japan, Artist IBUKI KURAMOCHI specializes in artworks for exhibition (paintings and media arts), and also specializes in live performances combining her live painting with her Japanese Butoh dance.
From 2012, Ibuki started exhibiting works in major cities in Japan, U.S.A.,Taiwan, France, Italy and Australia.
She studied Butoh dance at the world renown Kazuo Ohno Butoh Dance Studio in Yokohama in 2016.
Through her work, she pursues the physicality of Butoh’s poetic choreography and the pursuit of the human body in anatomy.
She visualizes her performance and body movements as two-dimensional works and video works.
Ibuki explores concepts of the body, thought and physical resonance, metamorphosis and fetishism.
