Midori Mitamura



I try to share with people awkward and endearing emotions arisen from memories that are familiar and close to everyone's lives. These ideas are gathered from people living in foreign countries, people who lived in the past, and also my life and the people around me, and are transformed into narratives. These then represent "a personal drama which people can venture into" that is drawn by the combination of various materials such as photos, images, music, language, old clothes and second hand goods. As I structure an intimate atmosphere filled with ambiguous stories like a personal stage between visitors and myself, I want to reflect my awareness inspired by my journeys into my artworks. That is for exploring what can be common feeling of value beyond any cultural differences and borders.
