THEME #24Winners2021JUN

MEMORIES

SHORT LIST

Statement

Memories in the smoke

Memory suddenly rises. They are unconsciously and repeatedly edited and reshaped. The more you try to look directly at it, the more it smokes, the more abstract it becomes, the more insubstantial it becomes.It is there. But we cannot touch it.Memories that I saw in the midst of a pandemic with no end in sight.

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
