Mika Nakamura-Mather “The Floating Word”

Mika Nakamura-Mather “The Floating Word”

Mika Nakamura-Mather has spent much of her life away from her homeland of Japan, living, working and travelling extensively in Europe, Asia and Australia. Her work draws from the present and the past to examine the role memory plays in our notions of home, and traces how it may influence our emotional responses to geographical and cultural dislocation.

The Floating Word uses cultural iconography that is relevant to her in ways that encourage the individual to reflect on their own ideas about what ‘home’ means to them.

This exhibition forms part of Nakamura-Mather’s DVA submission with the Queensland College of Art.
