Yuki Kobayashi seeks of transforming a gender boundaries from time and action-based work. His idea of work in performance is to become distinct from the dirty beauty of human behaviour. Kobayashi represents a hidden sexual mentality and physicality that people conceal in between brutality and adorable existence. Kobayashi’s action-based performances seek to reveal the authenticity of the human condition, working with the unexpected and the spontaneous to uncover the invisible, questioning power and restrictive social codes in light of freedom and equality. 

Performance represented in the exhibition of Motoko Ishibashi, Guru Den at Bosse & Baum, London, in 2017.
