Mari Terauchi - Introduction

My work centres around human conditions. The theme of human conditions derives from my curiosity on people’s reaction towards the social issues. The topics are often covered with humorous appearances. In my opinion, humour is a good way to express negative topics than direct messages or images. For me humorous appearance seems to cover at first glance the impression of unpleasantness from the serious issues, yet gently leads people to the core.

Sometimes the primary focus of these elements is expressed in combining of figures, objects and spaces to create an experimental and narrative installation. The figures and objects in a space are installation but also aimed to have the associations for the viewers.
