Yanagi’s insights into women’s issues, such as gender roles and youth versus age, are expressed dramatically in photographs that utilize computer graphics and special- effects makeup. She participated in the Yokohama Triennale in 2001 and represented Japan at the 2009 Venice Biennale. Since 2010, she has been involved in theater as well, and in this Triennale she presents a mobile stage truck for her new play Nichirin no tsubasa (Wings of the Sun), based on a text by Nakagami Kenji.
