Isabelle Mairiaux (Belgium)


Isabelle Mairiaux is a Belgian artist who works and lives in Japan. She was educated in Belgium and Japan, studying clinical psychology (MA. Bruxelles), music therapy (MA. Bruxelles and MA.

These different background have a common base: her deep interest for human and sound as well as her will to look for what keeps human “envie” (in French, it means not only “alive” but also “keeping desiring”). Recent Award: Monbusho scholarship (5 years long) from the Japanese Ministry of Culture since 2003. She is currently a PHD candidate in Contemporary Art in Tokyo National University but keeps her own black humor and her love for opened frames.
