'I Saw A Lantern Far Away' is part of Mimi Joung's new series Girl with the Lantern which forms part of a larger series of 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.
