Inspired by stained glass windows in European churches, Taguchi works with reflective materials including glass, mirrors, plastic, and light. Her work explores the various qualities of light and features a complex interplay of reflections and shadows.
The viewers are immersed in a relaxing and sublime space through light movements.
They are reminded of the profound effects light produces in nature, such as the northern lights, sunlight coming through trees, or the glimmering light reflected off the ocean.
Taguchi was born in Mito, Japan. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally, including solo exhibitions at Kunst Palast Museum-Glasmuseum Hentrich, Düsseldorf, and the Alcorcon Glass Museum in Madrid. She has shown her work extensively in cities such as New York, Tokyo, Berlin, London, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Lausanne, Asunción and Ilhabela Brazil.
Another component of Taguchi’s work includes performance-based collaborations. She created the stage set for “Centennial Celebration for John Cage: Competing Time and Spaces” at the Kanagawa Prefectural Gallery in Yokohama, Japan, and “Chaconne” at the Sophiensaele Theater in Berlin, Germany.
