Hira Tanao

My practice explores questions of identity and subjective truth through object making and imagery. I am drawn to the idea and illusion of ‘self’, the weird concept or feeling that comes and goes. It is obscure, very intimate yet distant.

The works かくれんぼ - Hide and Seek and I am some ONE. I am no ONE. both consist of a series of objects, self-portrait images and video portraying shifting selves, distortions and spontaneous absurdities.

I am interested in oscillating the perception of what is real, what lies in the mundane and what lies in the imagination. My work seeks to communicate a poetic sense of detachment, something strange and ambiguous.

I seek, I hide, and I seek again.
