“Miho Sato works from commonplace images derived from magazines, postcards and television. These images are collected but often lay dormant until such a time that they trigger a relationship to a childhood memory. It is as though each image exists between the world that it resides within and a world that is estranged from its social constitution, notably within memory. Her work is immersed in image–culture and yet it is in the disconnection with this world that her work finds its condition."
