Summer Shimizu

Photographer, Visual Artist

 

She is interested in the perspective of individuals in relation to wider current social, cultural and political systems. The conversations the artist has with others become triggers which are transformed into the fundamentals of a work’s structure. Their recent practice has been focussed on the act of translating cultures towards overcoming intercultural barriers. By highlighting aspects of one’s own culture and exhibiting this work in a range of cultural contexts, international exchange is intended to progress shared understandings. She employs a range of media and materials as required and as in relation to the subject. Her work often manifests in photography and sculpture and site specific installation.
