Born in Osaka in 1964. Lives and works in Paris.

After graduating from the Faculty of Economics, Doshisha University, Momotani moved to France in 1990 to study photography. There she developed an interest in curating which she went on to study in the Licence de Conception du Projet Culturel Department at Universite´ Paris 1. In 1995 she organized an exhibition titled “Micro Exposition chez Eriko Momotani” in which she made her own 20 square meter studio apartment available to the public. Momotani has since organized 21 exhibitions featuring 22 artists. In 2003 she organized her first sound exhibition. This was realized by featuring sound installations and concerts that provided visitors with a sonic experience that filled the living room, the kitchen, the bathroom, the toilet and the bedroom. The word “micro” has two meanings - an extremely small space, and that only a minimum of measures is all that is needed. In 2003 Momotani held an exhibition of source materials as well as a performance at Scratch Tile in Yokohama.

Major exhibitions Momotani has curated include Nick Gee- “Breakoff”(1996), Mathieu Mercier - “Melamine structure for a sofa”(1996), Jason Karaindros - “Fugues”(1999), Patrice Hamel - “Dilemma - Replique No.17”(2000), Eriko Momotani & Jakob Gautel - “One Hundred Views of Mt Fuji ~ a hommage to Hokusai"(2001)”, Ai Kitahara - “Mes lieux de transit”(2001, photo right), Carmela Uranga - “Head-lines”(2002, photo left), and Alexandros Markeas - “Concerto Spaziale"(2003).
