The artist

Born in Japan, Mina Mimbu moved to New Zealand at the age of 14 to continue her studies. Since she did not have a full grasp of English upon her arrival in Auckland, she turned to other means of expression to counteract the language barrier. A self-taught artist, she tried her hand at painting before broaching photography several years later, after the birth of her two sons. Over time, this became her main source of inspiration. The photographer borrows from the innocence of childhood realms to create candid images enabling her to escape reality. Since children see the world through their own eyes, a world very different to that of adults, Mina Mimbu aims to interpret it through the prism of her lens and infuses a hint of magic into her colourful portraits. Coupled with the magnificent and elusive landscapes of the Pacific, she leaves the spectator with the memory of an enchanting sentiment and an irresistible desire to reconnect with their inner child.  ...

About the artwork

Since childhood is evocative of personal memories for all of us, its representations are often linked to a memory that is still present and to poetic and nostalgic projections. An unrivalled magician, Mina Mimbu freezes time to document and narrate the fascinating world that children grow up in. Subtle, magical, sometimes serious, her photographic work flirts with the borders of reality and leads the spectator into some incredible landscapes. In her creations, children serve as go-betweens on this journey. The excitement, wonder, and freedom that they demonstrate while exploring and discovering something new is almost palpable. Mina Mimbu?s images are a poetic invitation to dream, in which emotions and dimensions shift. Cotton Candy seems to plunge us into the wonderful world of Alice in Wonderland, where clouds are cotton candy that we never tire of devouring with our eyes.
