MAM Collection 011: Yokomizo Shizuka + Matsukawa Tomona - The Personal Time We Are Living

2019.11.19 [Tue] - 2020.3.29 [Sun]

Participating Artists

Yokomizo Shizuka, Matsukawa Tomona

This edition of MAM Collection showcases work by two female artists depicting private everyday moments in the lives of different women. Yokomizo Shizuka’s video Forever (and again) (2003) shows four retired British pianists playing Chopin’s Waltz No. 10 in their own homes, evoking thoughts of their lives over the years. Meanwhile, Matsukawa Tomona’s paintings portray fragments of everyday reality, based on interviews with women of around the same age as herself working in Roppongi and showing the sadness and uncertainty that lie within them.

Yokomizo and Matsukawa’s intimate gazes, leveled at women of different cultures and generations in Britain and Japan, encourage us to reappraise what it means to live in modern society.
