Mayu Kanamori
Photography | Visual Art | Performance | Theatre  (NSW)
Mayu Kanamori’s works combine photography, performance art, videography, and story telling with emphasis on collaboration with artists from diverse genres and disciplines. Her earlier works have dealt with themes relating to subcultures and minority groups within Japan and Australia, whilst her later works have explored Australian and Japanese cross cultural, migrational and Japanese diasporic issues, making spiritual connections with people and landscapes of Australia and Japan. 

Mayu’s major works include The Heart of the Journey, CHIKA: A Documentary Performance In Repose, and Yasukichi Murakami – Through a Distant Lens shown in metropolitan arts festivals in Australia and abroad. She has received the NAIDOC Non Indigenous Reconciliation Award, a commendation by UN Media Peace Awards, selected as finalist for Walkley Awards, Conrad Jupiter Art Prize, Olive Cotton Award for Photographic Portraiture, Julie Milowick Photography Prize and Harries National Digital Art Awards.
