Sakasama Reverse World
Yumi Umiumare

The original impulse came from the ancient Japanese belief in
Sakasama: the reverse world. The two worlds of Life and Death are
described as two shores; one is ‘the near shore’ (the world of the
living), and the other is ‘the far shore’ (the world of after-death). A river flows between them. ‘The far shore’ is a reversed world: it is the reverse of the world of the living and everything is upside down. I explore the juxtaposition of my presence in Australia, experimenting with the neutrality of emotion and colour, and to manipulate rhythms.
