Hiroko Tsuchimoto (b.1984, Sapporo, Japan) is a visual/performance artist, living in Sweden since 2008. She began her career at Musashino Art University in Tokyo and went on to study at Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts, and Design and Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. Her works are generally manifested as stage performances and social experiments in public spaces. In her performance pieces, she often provides communal experiences to audience members through physical assignments, dialogues, and collective movement.
Since 2008, Tsuchimoto has presented her works internationally both inside and outside art spaces. She is a working grant recipient from Swedish Arts Grants Committee for the year 2013 and the years 2016-2017, as well as a grant holder at the IASPIS studio residency in Johannesburg in 2018. She is also active as an organizer to promote ephemeral art in Stockholm and works as a workshop leader focusing on developing her methods in non-hierarchical and decentralized settings.
