I Go Where I Go: Interview With Setsuko Ono

Upon retiring from a 28-year career in the World Bank in 2003, Setsuko Ono moved from one family vocation to another, leaving the banking profession into which she had followed her father and, like her sister Yoko some years before, pursuing a career in art. Having become best known for public sculptures in steel, Setsuko is now moving into the gallery for two consecutive presentations at the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation and then Asia House, both in London. Ahead of her shows, ArtAsiaPacific sat down with the artist to speak about her artistic career and the influences that have shaped her practice.
