SATOMI MATOBA: The Japanese British Islands (2001).

‘A no man’s land exists in between cultures. Marginal people who live in the no man’s land need constantly to renegotiate their space between conflicting systems. That is difficult, but I feel a threshold to a utopia is hidden here. The rules that seemed unshakable in the centre of a culture lose power on this frontier, and that makes the impossibles within a cultural framework possible, albeit at a risk of losing oneself in an unbearable sense of dislocation. In my work, I dissolve familiar space in order to reconstruct the world, contemplating an ambiguous open-ended potential in the act of shifting boundaries.’ – Satomi Matoba
