Mayumi Niiranen-Hisatomi

Not to forget (2011)

Not to forget (2011) is an installation which attempts to merge the environments of private home and a public exhibition space. Using the inhabitants’ old, discarded clothing and cloth, Niiranen-Hisatomi has woven a carpet of memories. As an ode to the past, Niiranen-Hisatomi would like to remember the things which unconsciously pass through our lives.

After the exhibition, the carpet will be turned into useful items such as bags etc, and will be returned to the inhabitants’ life and everyday use once more: with new additional memories.
