Statement

Crossed the river

My father crossed the river at 5:45 p.m. on November 1, 2020. No one knows the other side of the river, it's just an imaginary world. I myself have wanted to go across the river several times, but I no longer feel that way, and I can't stop thinking about it anyway. When I saw my father at the altar, I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders and my eyes had become brighter.

Jury selection

Judged by Tim Barber:

Inspired by the Grand Prix, Takahashi Miki’s work, I thought it would be fun and interesting to make a compilation of the widely diverse and eclectic work submitted for this contest. When edited and organized, the “memory” submissions, sent in from dozens of artists, become a kind of collective-memory-collage, a dream sequence of disparate clues from a kaleidoscopic narrative.

* This work was included in a curated collection of works selected by the judge Tim Barber from a number of submitted works. See the collection
