biography

Tokyo Rumando is the pseudonym of a young Tokyo photographer (born in 1980) whose work seems to have taken over the dark, eroticised imagery of male photographers such as Nobuyoshi Araki. However, Rumando produces her own vision of sexuality and intimacy that challenge gender boundaries. With the use of her own body she expresses her own fantasies and suggests those that she imagines projected onto her by others. 

For her series 'Orphee', Rumando created multi-faceted self-portraits in which a round mirror, resembling a porthole, functions as a window into her subconscious. Reflected in the mirror are her memories and she is seen in front of the mirror as well as inside it - she is her past, present and future all at once. Rumando has created the entire series in her home, using multiple techniques and a wide range of material from wigs and appropriated images to fire and blood. Each image layer was shot separately then pieced together to create a photomontage, which was re-photographed on film to produce the final work. The title was taken from Jean Cocteau's 1950 film 'Orphee', whose use of a mirrored portal paralleled her own. 

Works from this series were shown at Tate Modern, London, as part of the exhibition 'Performing for the Camera' in 2016.
