In residence 28th March - 10th April 2017
Eiko Soga was born in Tokyo and lives and works in the UK. She works with intangible elements that affect both individual consciousness and social milieu. Within a context of social politics and alternative culture, she investigates subjective experiences such as physical sense, spoken word and empathy. Her process and experimental work employs dual concerns of site-specific research and art discourse as a recursive look at each discipline's modes of observation. Looking at the relationship between object and agency within ethnography as art practice is an important part of her research.
Since graduating from the Slade School of Fine Art in MFA Sculpture, she has been working with the indigenous Ainu people of Hokkaido, Japan. This will result in essay, video and installation work.
