Asian Artists to Watch 2024: Etsu Egami

Each year, we identify the Asian artists on the rise, shining a light on the exciting and provocative works enriching the region’s artistic and cultural landscape. Japanese artist Etsu Egami shares her story.

Artist and global citizen Etsu Egami has lived in the US and Europe, and actively works between Tokyo and New York, London and Beijing. Constantly shifting between countries and cultures, Egami has experienced various communication barriers in her lifetime, and describes language as something that can “only
be sensed, not explained”. Her work thus focuses heavily on the discipline of language and communication, using various media forms, including voice, video and drawings, to question humankind’s instincts and the authenticity of communication. Egami is also a postdoctoral researcher at Tsing Hua University.

Receiving wide acclaim for her site-specific works, Egami also exhibited at Kiaf Seoul last year.
