HITOMI KAMMAI: SOMETHING HUMAN INSIDE

“My works are a description of human existence. In my works, people can find my surprise and wonder about ourselves. We live in an environment surrounded by human-made objects and thoughts. Even nature is modified by us. Living in this circumstance, it seems to me we construct enormously. Yet, everything is actually about to disappear in a moment.”

ANT PEARCE: THE EXTERNAL AUTHORITY

“…more importantly, it is about control, or the ‘illusion’ of being in control and moving through a state of displeasure to a state of pleasure. The only aspect of my work which I see that touches on ideas of ‘repetition and repression’ is this ‘illusion’ that we as human beings are in control of ourselves, let alone anything else, and the inevitable fact that we will return to a state that is inanimate.”

“Although no adult seriously believes in James Bond, [but] as an example of a man who gets results through sheer determination, individual heroism and disobedience in the face of brutish bureaucracy he means something serious for men and boys.”

SUSAN FRANCIS: THE WEIGHT OF ABSENCE

“Recently I have been dipping in and out of Bourdieu’s Distinction which illustrates just how locked we our within the historical and social framework we were born into. At our most basic molecular level we are, after all, the product of repetitive creative structure so it seems only natural that we should create in this vein.”
