Rena Kudoh (b.1994)
Japanese, works and lives in Tokyo, JAPAN.
Rena Kudoh was born in 1994 in Miyagi, Japan. She has produced sculptures and drawings creating her own worldview that was influenced by memories of her childhood.The artist grew up around Japanese animations about girls who fight against the enemy and many other sentai(戦隊) anime. She confronted discomfort somewhere in those heroic narratives that show clear dichotomy between friend and foe, and female characters who are set as an object to be saved. In Rena’s world, her subjects do away with the tensions between genders, and between friend and foe.
