STORY

SHORT LIST

Statement

Oikos

A reflection on the enduring human ability to process change.
Throughout our lives relationships change, with people and places, making us reassess who we are and where we’ve come from. This work engages with connections: between people, places, things; between memory and time; of transitions, goodbyes and new beginnings. The images pre-mourn something that is about to be lost: a family home and a marriage. Oikos refers to family, the family’s property, and home, distinct concepts, yet perpetually combined.
Quietly, things fade out of existence, until they only remain in our memories.

Jury selection

Judged by Tomoko Yoneda:

The artist steps into a deeply personal theme; she has amazingly turned her experience of transition from pain, sadness, and sense of loss into a piece of art as a quiet prayer.
