Mayunkiki

A rare exhibition of work by Japanese Ainu artist Mayunkiki, it comprises video installation that conveys aspects of the everyday life of her people, the Indigenous inhabitants of Hokkaido.

Like many ‘First Nation’ populations, for too long the Ainu have suffered systematic marginalisation by a central government and Mayunkiki is especially concerned to raise the profile of their traditional culture, including tattooing (Sinuye) and music (Upopo). This exhibition follows a number by Ikon featuring Indigenous women artists, including Meryl McMaster (Canada), Judy Watson and Yhonnie Scarce (Australia) and Britta Marakatt-Labba (Sweden).
