Noriko Okaku – The Interpreter

Noriko Okaku was selected for a Parts & Labour commission in partnership with Animate Projects, QUAD and D-Lab. During her three-month residency Okaku has produced a series of exciting new works inspired by the Parts & Labour theme for exhibition in QUAD’s Extra Gallery Spaces and online, alongside the Animate OPEN: Parts & Labour exhibition in QUAD Gallery.

Heavily inspired by Derbyshire’s history, myths and legend, Okaku has created a series of collage works that form a new Tarot, loaded with symbolism, intrigue and mystical imagery. Also presented is a new animation, bringing this new mythical narrative to life.

Noriko Okaku was born in Japan and now lives and works in London. She studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art, completing her MA in Animation in 2005. Her work in various media often retains an element of collage. She borrows, adopts, copies and recycles existing images to explore the eclecticism, mystery and strangeness underlying everyday objects and actions.
