Tsuneko Taniuchi was born in Hyogo, Japan. In 1987, she moved to Paris, where she lives and works. In 1995, she created the concept of the Micro-Event, as a way of rethinking the relations between the viewer, the artwork and the artist. Taniuchi says, “The Micro-Event stems from my desire to be on the same level as the public. I invite the viewer to take part in an experiment consisting of small-scale targeted actions that transcend the limits between art and life, questioning reality, tradition, represen- tation, norms and codes.”
Although Tsuneko Taniuchi’s work mainly explores the borders between art and life, it also looks at questions relating to social, sexual and cultural identity. Tsuneko Taniu- chi’s work has been shown in Europe, the States, and Japan, and also at international events such as Force de l’art at the Grand Palais, Paris in 2006 and 2009, and the Liv- erpool Biennial in 2004. In 2017, she received a fellowship from the FNAGP (Fonda- tion nationale des Arts graphiques et Plastiques) to develop her Micro-Event N°50.
Fabienne Dumont is an art historian, art critic and professor at the ÉESAB (École Européenne Supérieure d’Art de Bretagne). Her thesis has been published under the title Des sorcières comme les autres – Artistes et féministes dans la France des années 1970 (PUR, 2014). Her interest in issues involving feminism and gender, as well as queer issues and questions of masculinity, prompted her to edit an anthology, La rébellion du Deuxième Sexe – L’histoire de l’art au crible des théories féministes anglo-américaines (1970-2000) (Presses du réel, 2011). She contributes regularly to collective publications and magazines.
She is also a member of the AICA (Association Internationale des Critiques d’Art). Some of her recent articles accompanied the performances of TsunekoTaniuchi (fondation Hermès, Tokyo), the installation of Andrea Bowers (Espace culturel Louis Vuitton, Paris), the exhibitions of Marie Preston and Chercher le garçon (MACVAL), “L’étude de genre sous le prisme de l’histoire de l’art” for Universalia 2015 – Ency- clopædiaUniversalis, and the exhibitions of Nil Yalter (La Verrière, Bruxelles ; FRAC Lorraine, Metz).
