Momoyo Torimitsu: Somehow, I Don’t Feel Comfortable

Organized by the Bedford Gallery at the Lesher Center for the Arts

October 6 – December 31, 2017

Momoyo Torimitsu’s gigantic inflatable bunnies, entitled “Somehow I don’t feel comfortable,” are a reflection of contemporary social angst and modern popular iconography. The installation depicts two bunnies slumped in opposite corners in a sad, lonely manner – entirely filled with air, erect and purposeful –  however enclosed in a space that does not accommodate them, emotionally and physically.
