A Little Bit About Me

I’m Nagisa, an interdisciplinary artist from Japan.

Born in Nagoya, Japan. Graduated from Tsuda College, majoring in International Development. After working as a coordinator for international security issues at the Ministry of Defense in Japan, Mizuno changed her focus to more interpersonal issues. Her work incorporates an act of eating food to probe the ways in which we care about ourselves, others, and the surrounding environment. Through her art practice, she aims to create intertwined spaces of ‘fermentation’ in a playful way. She currently studies in the Global Art Practice MFA program at Tokyo University of the Arts.
