Midori Mitamura

Green on the Mountain

November 24, 2006 – January 28, 2007

Midori Mitamura’s artistic works occupy a position between photography and installation. They quote elements from the past, either her own or that of strangers, taking this as the point of departure from which to reveal modes of remembering and the reiterating memory of private biography. In a subtle and ironic way, Mitamura sounds out the tensions between individual experience and retrospectively lived history, without losing sight of the volatility and slipperiness of personal experience.


Midori Mitamura, born in 1964 in Aichi, lives and works in Tokyo.
