MEM presents new works by Noriko Yamaguchi. In PEPPERMINT MOTHER, Yamaguchi shows video installation accompanied with photographs and a sculpture. Her imaginary character PEPPERMING MOTHER and PEPPERMING GIRLSs are creatures born from chewing gum. Her video PEPPERMINT MOTHER, clay animation, shows numerous living chewing gums moving around and covering every part of Yamaguchi’s body.
Noriko Yamaguchi made her debut with her first series KEITAI GIRL, also a character as a human cell phone in 2003. In the following years, she produced series OGURARA HIME that based on an episode of the goddess of fertility in Japanese mythology. All her works are self-portraits with the idea of transmutation of human body.
