Born in Fukuoka Prefecture in 1983; lives and works in Sweden.
Using exquisite textiles in beautiful colors as materials, Moriyama creates installations that transform pre-existing environments and architectural spaces. She studied architectural design and textiles at graduate schools in Kyoto and Sweden, and leverages this background in her unique work that links architecture and textiles. She founded Studio Akane Moriyama in 2010, which mainly produces indoor and outdoor installations, and curtains for private homes and companies. Recently, her work has been featured in a group exhibition at the University of Texas at Austin in the U.S. (2013), the Venice Biennale of Architecture (2014), and elsewhere. For KENPOKU ART 2016, she will be installing work in the serene forest by Oiwa Shrine in Hitachi.
