Formed mainly by Miwa Okuno and Yohei Fujishiro(composer) in 2014, N///K has been actively performing original pieces since its organization. “Artificial」(Institute France Tokyo 2014年),REAL CONTROLLER」(Yokohama BankART 2016, a physical installationThe abandoned body」(2017,Namelessness」(d-soko 2017, Wind and Pore Organ and Sound」(Za Koenji 2019” , are their previous domestic performances.


In 2022, they moved their base to Kyoto and changed a company name to nakice.

In April 2022, they held installation "ABITA" at JINNAN HOUSE (Shibuya,/Tokyo), where they continuously performed with objects, body, and sound for 8 hours a day for a total of 3 days, and began to find performance, phenomena, traces, afterimages, processes, and cycles all as their works of art.

The output will be in the form of two-dimensional and three-dimensional works, installations, and video works that use the traces of objects from the performance, treating the body, artifacts, and natural objects as equivalent media, and aiming for a development that crosses the boundaries between performance art and contemporary art.
