Member Profile : Makiko Yamamoto

Makiko Yamamoto (b. Japan) is based in Melbourne, Australia, where she has been developing her sonic and spatial practice over the past 15 years. She uses a wide range of formats – live performance, private recordings, radio broadcasts, video and sound-based installation. Yamamoto’s practice engages a theoretical approach, repositioning fundamental materials such as the voice, the body and language as conveyers of meaning. Employing translation, misunderstanding and awkwardness as critical tools, Yamamoto seeks to expose the vulnerabilities of social and ideological codes underlying everyday verbal communication: speech, text and language.
