Kojima draws, paints, sculpts and performs the life of a hamster as a caricatured city dweller whose life is helplessly formulated into the daily routine of work-eat-sleep. Locked up in a gallery cell,and under the surveillance of visitors, Kojima mindlessly continues her habitual behaviours-biting sunflower seeds and chewing on paper-for almost a week, it is a confrontation with the fears of inescapable boredom and solitude in life, executed in a bright spirit of optimism.
