Yukako Tanaka is a Japanese artist, working and living in London. Her research and artworks aim to translate the beauty of scientific evidence (such as cosmic rays, gravitational-wave and human brain) into a fine art context. And her practice conducts cross-disciplinary research in philosophy, physics, and biology and collaborating with researchers in astrophysics and neurology. She received the Princess of Wales Award 2018/19 (Royal College of Art/Contemporary Art Practice) in her first year.
Last year, Yukako was selected as one of the participants of the Ethereal Antimatter Challenge in #SciCommHack at CERN (Geneva). Her works were exhibited both within the UK and globally, such as Late Light 2019 at King’s College London, Sound and Vision at Royal Academy of Music, and SICF20 @Spiral Hall (Tokyo). As one of the members of the Partisan Social Club, she participated in Coventry Biennial 2019. On publication, her works are introduced in the Aesthetica Magazine, Issue 98 / Artists' Directory and Artists' Spotlight.
