In 2010 my work will function as a ‘performance art essay’ that reveals my observations of human beings and society. This essay is not defined by words. Elements from the unconscious and emotions will appear as impromptu elements. Some fragments from my daily life act as metaphor, which the audience can understand through their own filters.

Kaori Haba holds a BA from Hokkaido University. Haba began making performance art in 1999. She is the Director of Art_Plus-jp, a non-profit group based in Nagano prefecture that organizes annual international performance art events.
