“I wonder why they could speak our language,” she said. “No one knows,” I said. “But they could speak it. Charley says maybe we were tigers a long time ago and changed but they didn’t. I don’t know. It’s an interesting idea, though…”
This is part of a series of Mimi Joung’s work in which the artist creates colourful sculptures based on the slim novel called ‘In Watermelon Sugar’ by the American writer, Richard Brautigan. Cavaliero Finn was particularly drawn to these pieces, their bright colours and playfulness. Mimi creates these sculptures by tracing and taping each chapter of Brautigan’s surreal landscape which are reflections of displacement within imagined utopias and dystopias. Each sculpture relates to a chapter in the book, featuring the words from Brautigan’s novel.
