Manika Nagare

For many years, observing strangers around her has been an impetus for Manika Nagare's work. She fixes her eyes on both the visible and invisible, the shapely and shapeless characteristics of a person, filtered through her imagination. Her new works, produced between 2013 and 2014 and featured in "Line of Sight," adopt the same attitude towards landscapes – particularly of Tohoku, a northeastern region of Japan – as her new interest. Manika Nagare was born in Osaka in 1975 and currently lives and works in Tokyo.
