Kyoko Imazu

As a child in central Japan, Kyoko Imazu drew animals like rabbits, rats, cats and birds. Animals continue to dominate her art practice; her works on paper are inspired by taxidermied animals in the collections of the Melbourne Museum and the Tokyo Nature and Science Museum.

Animalis is Kyoko’s investigation into her fixation with the animal kingdom and how recording and interpreting it evoke memories from her childhood.
