Editor's Note by Satoshi Koganezawa

It is an installation produced by using a large amount of things like the metaphor of ‘woman’ such as the mirror, clothes, and the make-up tools. The image and music are combined, and the space is very disorderly. There is also a mirror to which a large amount of false eyelash is thickly put up, and the strongly dazzling atmosphere of by these women things makes me feel drunk. The statement of this artist that "I still don’t know what the "definite" you or I am" is common to the feeling of "I do not understand what I am" which I strongly feel in Tetsuya Senda's paintings. From the Kamata’s work, I could find her attempt to find something further the general image of 'women-like' by making the metaphors more abstract.
