Japanese artist Fumie Sasabuchi was born and grew up in Tokyo where she originally studied at the Tama Art University until 2002, since then, feeding a deep interestin both; anatomy and fashion, up to the point that she became a collector of medical books and fashion magazines with the same passion. During all her education she used to do some designs and patterns and sometimes sew clothes herself. Concerning anatomy she pretty early studied medical anatomy books, however, she started mixing both fields of fashion and anatomy much later when she moved to germany and studied at the Academy of Arts in Munich under Norbert Prangenberg, when she started interweaving both areas. In her most recent solo-shows she deconstructs the perception of a perfect physique and played very deliberately with the subject of death that remains as one of many taboos in Western culture. Fumie Sasabuchi unlocks the repressed visual world and reveals a new concept of beauty with her works.
