Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, in cooperation with ASIATOPIA International Performance Art Festival, organized the first ASIATOPIA Talk in 2014. The objective of the Talk is to act as an open platform for the artists and the public to exchange ideas around performance art as well as to allow further interpretation of the concept behind each work.
ASIATOPIA Talk 2015 will be organized in four intervals: July, October, November, and December. Each attempts to focus on different aspects and highlights on the experiences shared by the artists who will be the speakers. The talk aims to present the artists’ work approach, inspiration, and allow the audience to admire the practice of performance art.
About the Speaker
Sakiko Yamaoka
Born 1961, Yamaoka is a Tokyo based artist who has graduated from Musashino Art University where she studied oil painting. Yamaoka started performance art in 1992 but did not produce much work until 1997 where she started to take part in performance art festivals and events in Asia, Western and Eastern Europe, North and South America, including Tokyo and Yokohama. Yamaoka defines her art-works as sculptures depicting action and time, and relationship between daily material and body reactions based on the underlying concept of the performance that highlights human conditions. Her recent work has focused on a geometrical structure. Besides performance art, Yamaoka also works in events, moving images, photography and drawings.
