This winter The Art House welcomes visitors to experience the unfolding of in.visible, an exciting new solo show by Huddersfield based artist Ryoko Akama. In this new body of work, the artist manipulates light and process as she pushes the boundaries of traditional analogue photography, performance and sculpture.

Following her time spent at The Art House on residency this summer, Akama’s latest work responds to family history and examines the fluidity of her experience as an untold Zainichi (Korean immigrant in Japan). in.visible presents a new performing body of photographic work and sculpture which will change and develop over the show’s duration. The artist uses these experimental photographic methods to examine themes of loss, identity, injustice, contradiction, and pride, as well as investigating how her own personal cultural ‘root’ has shaped her as an artist.
