Mimi Nakajima (Japan)
Wind doesn't blow branches
1 Nov. 2002
My performances develop from problems in my daily life, which I try to observe in an optimistic way. As I start to find the truth of a question, my thinking moves toward philosophic conclusion, the territory of 'reason'.
If I bring my conclusions back to reality, it creates a funny gap. That is what I want to express in performance. There is always some 'vagueness' in trying to clarify truth. It is quite difficult to express the vagueness itself, but I find performance a useful means of accepting it. In performance art, people experience discovery through sharing time and place.
Mimi Nakajima is based in Tokyo. A graduate of the Tokyo National University of Fine Art, she has presented her work in Europe and Asia. This is her first performance in North America.
