Born in 1991 in Tokyo, she received her MFA from Global Art Practice course of Tokyo University of the Arts. She also studied at Bauhaus University and Zurich University of Arts through an exchange program. She has joined several residency programs abroad. Her works show you bittersweet moments of life.
In recent years, Rieko Tsuji has found herself residing in several new places. This experience propelled her to do research on the relationship between culture, environment and ways of thinking, while also examining how people bridge gaps of time and distance as they relocate around the world. Recurring motifs in her work include the interactions of strangers on the Internet, as well as planets and satellites.
Her work also portrays very personal stories of family, friendship and love; expressed in a way that is universally intelligible and shareable by the audience, blurring the line between public and private, internal and external, objective and subjective.
