Kumi Oguro is intrigued by the images of our dreams just before awakening: it is difficult to find the logic there, there is nothing to indicate time, the space is indeterminate. In her work, she tries to create an atmosphere that is quite close to those dream images. The faces of the models are hidden. It is not clear whether we see a frozen moment of what was going on (whatever it is) or rather if they are waiting to be awakened from a long, long sleep.

[Kumi Oguro started her study of photography in London in 1996, followed by further development at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp until 2003. She also experimented with video and installation in a postgraduate program and she got a master’s degree in Film studies and Image Culture.]
