Belongings (2018 – )

Belongings (2018 –  )

The objects belonged to the people who lost their lives in the Japanese earthquake in 2011. The objects hold the owner’s last day. The imprint of the memory hovers around the object and a fragment of the owner’s life seeps out. I felt closer to the items and wanted to celebrate the lives that these items had witnessed. The sound of their lives resonates with the objects, showing the people once had their families, friends and their everyday. (Saori Parry, 2020, edited in 2021)
