In the world of lock-down, ame launched a new collaboration with mumei publishing in order to work on three newspaper publications. This edition, mumei 7, is a collection of my installation and performance works between 2017 and 2019. The 24 pages’ worth of photography is intricately and thoughtfully designed by Stephen Harvey, examining the aesthetics and ideas behind my recent works. The ever-first solo book reveals how much my works contains ideas and expressions though none of them are quite explicit.
