Urara Tsuchiya (b. 1979, Japan) lives and works between Glasgow and London. Her practice explores the boundaries of taboos, for example referencing the juxtaposition of animal/human or adult/baby to strange and humorous effect. The artist works across ceramics, sculpture, costume, as well as expanding into performance, video and live events in which her material objects work as props for an alternate environment.
Recent solo exhibitions include: Throwing Caution to the Wind, Galerie Lefebre & Fils, Paris (2021), Auntie Urara’s Blabber Mouth, PAOS, Guadalajara (2021), Warm Drizzle, Gallery Golsa, Oslo (2020) and Home Bound, Ada Project, Rome (2020). Selected group exhibitions include: Pornotopia Revised, Kunsthalle Exnergasse Kex, WUK, Vienna (2022), On Being an Angel (with Motoko Ishibashi), Ritsuki Fujisaki Gallery, Tokyo (2022) and Homeplace, V.O Curations, London (2021), amongst others.
