Rieko Whitfield is a London-based, Japanese-American multidisciplinary artist who weaves immersive worlds with speculative mythologies through performance, moving image, installation, sculpture, music, and text. Her storytelling decentres narratives of Western, capitalist individualism toward beyond-human collectivism. Whitfield often collaborates as an artist, curator, and community organiser, and is the founding member of the performance art platform Diasporas Now.
Her current project Regenesis draws from the visual language, emotional affect, and often complex political undertones in the popular formats of the music video and the EP.
She has exhibited in and worked with institutions such as the Palais de Tokyo, the Saatchi Gallery, the Wellcome Collection, Gasworks, and NN Contemporary.
Whitfield is an MA graduate of the Royal College of Art, and previously studied at the American University of Paris and University of the Arts London: Central Saint Martins.
