Rina Nakano

Born in Japan, Rina Nakano is an artist whose works revolve around themes which explore new possibilities and unorthodox alternatives to human communication in the contemporary age through performance, multilingual interplay, and questioning the notion of “self” through the nature of
photography. 

 

Her cultural identity as Japanese has been examined through assimilation into U.S. customs for about 9 years since she first attended high school in Texas as an exchange student until she graduated from California State University, Long Beach with a BFA degree in Photography.

 

Since 2019, she has been based in Berlin.
