Ayumi ADACHI (JP) was born in Hyogo, Japan and received her BFA from the Osaka University of Arts, Japan in 1994. She has been based in Hong Kong since 1996.
In her practice she engages with motifs that represent the regular and the irregular, the circulation and repetition of time frames as metaphors for influence on human life cycles. She is particularly interested in the Buddhist interpretation of the cycle of reincarnation: birth, death and rebirth. Her body of work ranges from large-scale immersive installations to individual paintings on shaped mirrors.
Adachi has exhibited widely in Japan as well as Shanghai, Macau, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Her work has been included in numerous international art fairs since 2010 including the Korean International Art Fair (KIAF), Asia Contemporary Art Show (HK) and the Affordable Art Fair (HK). Her artworks have been acquired by a number of public and private collections.
