Born 1971 in Tokyo. Artist, composer, musician based in Düsseldorf since 1994. Multi-disciplinary artist, crossing the boundary of music, performance, drawing, and installation. She invastigates the grey zone of our perception, between the reality – imaginary. Her work is shown worldwide.
“Miki Yui´s creations emulate nature´s own structures, and they go well beyond trying, they succeed where others fail. Her music is not a river, in fact it overflows in all directions imaginable, and it seems like the sounds and their interaction describe a kind of natural evolution. It´s like watching a web woven in time-lapse, or mashroom or butterfly. Instead of the camera or the microscope it´s the microphon capturing the proceedings from close-up. Thus we experience the energy and life itself, unbridled and unrelenting.”—Detlef Weinrich, Tolouse Lowtrax
„Starting from a perception of the faintest sounds and noises, Miki Yui develops pieces of music, drawings and sound installations that are subtle references to existents.“ — Erich Franz
„Miki Yui´s work deals with the memory of lived events. Focusing in particular on images and sounds, it reveals the trace, or wake, that these leave behind as they fade, after having appeared (in the former case) or been produced (in the latter).“—Carlo Fossati, e/static
