Midori Mitamura has exhibited her spatial artworks widely around the world. Through fieldwork, she structures art installations using various materials such as photos, images, language, and everyday objects. Such installations express “a personal drama into which people can venture”, which reflects an intertwining of our personal memories and sentiments. Her ongoing art project “Art & Breakfast” is a site-specific project that is a combination of exhibits and breakfast meetings with visitors. Whilst staying in artist residencies around the world, she develops improvised installations that respond her consciousness towards everyday life beyond cultural differences.

Statement
“Dramas which people can venture into”
My installations are structured by diverse presentations using various materials such as photos, images, music, language, and found objects that lost those original functions. Also, they portray personal imagery stories as “dramas which people can venture into”. My critical point of views try to reveal various issues among our societies, human lives and histories in my installations and they depict incomprehensible intertwining of personal consciousness and sentiments that freely travels back and forth between the boundaries of reality and fiction. In my artworks, I mirror the absence of erstwhile memories that are drifting around. Those are drawn by emotions and sentiments extracted from people living in foreign countries, people who lived in the past, and the people around me.Then trails of awkward endearing emotions that are close to everyone’s lives beyond any cultural differences and borders just appear there.
