Mitamura Midori is internationally active primarily as an installation artist, turning her gaze on the drama generated by memories and documents of everyday life. She positions photos, videos, furniture, miscellaneous items, and words within rooms in the manner of story illustrations, turning the rooms into forums for her own recollections and reminiscences and inviting viewers to interpret them. These spaces are infused with a universal humor and sadness to which any viewer can relate. In recent years she has taken her long-running gallery residency-based project “Art & Breakfast” to numerous locations around the world.
