Starts in 2 days

Shiori Tono finds her motifs in photographs from her childhood taken by her parents, or in photographs that she herself has taken and stored, depicting on canvas their distortion and disintegration. She wishes to portray memories not simply to indulge in nostalgia. Her focus is on the quality particular to “memory,” the system itself, that cannot but be subject to disintegration and loss.
In this age of information, we are already experiencing the fragility inherent in those digital images that supplement and record our memories, as exemplified in the pixelation that is caused by the deterioration of image resolution. Shiori Tono is an artist who paints “memory” in all its ephemerality.
