Childhood

Childhood

Ryoko Suzuki. Childhood, 2005.

Description:
Almost everyday, Japanese newspapers and TV report child abuse cases. I wonder how many children are crying because not only of physical cruelty but also of emotional abuse. The children’s clothes, which are made of half-transparent material, silicon, symbolize the innocence of children. The color of the clothes reflects the background color that represents adults. I express the wordless anguish of the victims through filthy, torn clothes made of colorless silicon.
