About the artist
Born in 1980 in Kanagawa, lives and works in Tokyo. Yuko MOHRI produces installations that convey intangible energies such as magnetism, gravity, light, and temperature, by creating assemblages of reconfigured everyday items and machine parts collected in cities around the world. She stayed in New York for 6 months from spring 2015 as a grantee of Asian Cultural Council (ACC) and won the grand prix of "NISSAN ART AWARD 2015" in the same year. Her recent major exhibitions include "The Way Things Go" (Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taipei, 2016), "Mirror Mirror" (Kate Werble Gallery, New York, 2015), "Yokohama Triennale 2014" (Yokohama Museum, Yokohama, 2014), "Sapporo International Art Festival 2014" (Seikatei / Chi Ka Ho, Sapporo, 2014), "Unseen Existence" (Hong Kong Arts Centre, Hong Kong, 2014), "OROCHI" (waitingroom, Tokyo, 2013), "Circus" (Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, Bloomberg Pavilion, Tokyo, 2012) and many others both in Japan and abroad. She will stay as an artist-in-residence at Victoria and Albert Museum (London) and then at Camden Arts Centre (London) from summer to fall total for 4 months. During the same time of our exhibition, MOHRI is also participating in the group exhibition "Roppongi Crossing 2016 : My Body, Your Voice" at Mori Art Museum (3/26-7/10).
