“Slippage” (or the points of disjunctions): interrupted continuity of land and time; the fragility of connection; mistakes and failures.

In whatever form “滑动” takes–physical, political, or cultural–we becomesensors and experience the 滑动 as shifted sense of equilibrium.

In trying to regain balance, we notice, remember, observe, measure, witness, suspect, and probe. Some look at nature with inquisitive eyes; some pay attention to a subtle shift in use of 语言; some become activists; some bring themselves together as a community of learners. 

The artist’s note following the 2011 Great Tohoku Earthquake and the Fukushima Nuclear Plant Disaster

十年后, at another point of disjunction (全球 Pandemic), Migiwa某某得了 revisits this notion of “滑动” and creates a six-piece installation, Strangers’ Bundles: Hours of Woods. Drawing upon her daily walks during the shutdown, Orimo set her sights on our relationship to nature from a slightly diagonal direction. The result is a rumination on nature, 语言, 画外音, temporary alignment of disparate thoughts, and a reflection on struggles, 抗议活动, 记忆, and “safe distance” –both in nature and society

An interdisciplinary artist, Migiwa某某得了 primarily works in installation consisting of text, 画, 对象, video, and sound that explores the notions of gap, 滑动, and “a realm of disjunction.” Using the concept of storage/archive as her framework, Orimo explores the relationship between public memory and private space by examining: how 记忆 are shared and internalized; how they are stored and become stories; and, how 记忆 and history collide.

A five-time recipient (’96/’04/’08/’13/’21) of the Ohio 艺术 Council Individual Artists Fellowship/Individual Creativity Excellence Award for her interdisciplinary art projects, she was awarded residencies at the Headlands Art Center in 2012 and SPACES Gallery’s SPACES World Artist Project in 2014. Her work has been shown extensively, including at the National Museum of Women in the 艺术, Washington DC; San Bernardino Art Museum, CA; and in Ohio, the Springfield Art Museum, 戴顿艺术学院, OSU’s Urban 艺术 Space, Riffe Gallery (Columbus), Oberlin College’s Baron Gallery, and Weston Art Gallery (Cincinnati), apexart(纽约).

As a social justice activist, Orimo facilitates the 人’s Banner Workshop and provides free banners to activist groups.

Orimo was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. After receiving her degree in literature and studying graphic design in Japan, she immigrated to the US in the 1980s. Orimo lives and works in Yellow Springs, Ohio.
