Tsuneko Taniuchi

Tsuneko Taniuchi is a Japanese performance artist born in Hyogo, Japan. Since 1987, she has lived and worked in Paris, France.[1] In 2014, Taniuchi performed her 45th "Micro-event", a series of performances that explore the borders between art and common occurrences of everyday life. "Micro-events" are an ongoing performance series that Taniuchi started in 1995 and has taken place in Europe, the United States, and Asia.[2][3]

Taniuchi is interested in working with themes related to women in contemporary society,[1] as she finds the hierarchical etiquette and customs for women in Japan unappealing.[3]
