Sachiyo Nishimura is drawn to the visual language of industrialisation; by pushing the boundaries of photography she conveys the fascinating anonymity of certain urban spaces and objects of which we have become oblivious. Railway stations and power lines feature heavily in her work. On the one hand these are familiar to the viewer, but on the other, out of context and without location, they are rendered ambiguous. Through Sachiyo’s meticulous post production process, which involves endless grid schematics and geometrical sketches, she proposes another version of the cityscape that is more beautiful, complex and thought provoking than what actually exists.
Currently living and working in London, Sachiyo completed her BA in Fine Arts at the Universidad Catolica de Chile in 2001, and later in 2002 she attended professional courses on photography at Grisart and IDEP, both schools in Barcelona, Spain. In 2007 she moved to London to complete her MA in Fine Arts at Central Saint Martins. During the past 12 years she has participated in exhibitions in Chile and in the UK, both group and solo shows and has undertaken both public and private commissions. Her work was selected and exhibited in Bloomberg New Contemporaries in 2008, Liverpool Biennial and London, and she was awarded the first prize at the DLA Piper Art Award 2009 and received the Chelsea Arts Club Trust Stan Smith Award 2011. She has had recent exhibitions at the Architectural Association and Sarah Myerscough Gallery in London.
