Momose Aya

  • Born 1988 in Tokyo, Japan.
  • Based in Tokyo, Japan.

By employing a self-referential methodology that reconsiders the structure of the moving image via the moving image itself, Momose Aya’s work deals with the multi-layered complexity of communication with the other. Focusing on bodies appearing in moving images, her recent practice further questions sexuality and gender. Momose’s solo exhibitions include I.C.A.N.S.E.E.Y.O.U, EFAG East Factory Art Gallery (2020; Tokyo, Japan) and Voice Samples, Yokohama Museum of Art Art Gallery 1 (2014; Kanagawa, Japan). Selected group shows include Listen to Her Song, The University Art Museum, Tokyo University of the Arts (2020; Japan); Roppongi Crossing 2016: My Body, Your Voice, Mori Art Museum (2016; Tokyo, Japan); and Artist File 2015 Next Doors: Contemporary Artists in Japan and Korea, presented at National Art Center (2015; Tokyo, Japan) and National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (2016; Gwacheon). In 2017, she stayed in New York as an Asian Cultural Council Fellow.
