About the Artist
Yuko MOHRI is born in Kanagawa in 1980, currently living and working in Tokyo. She graduated from Tama Art University, Department of Information Design in 2004 and from Tokyo University of the Arts, Graduate School of Inter-Media Art in 2006. Recent exhibitions include a solo exhibition “OROCHI” (2013, waitingroom, Tokyo), group exhibition “The Things We Have Overlooked” (2013, Sendai Mediatheque, Miyagi), group exhibition “Anonymous Life” (2012, NTT InterCommunicationCenter [ICC], Tokyo), solo exhibition “Circus” (2012, Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, Tokyo), group exhibition “x_sound”(2012, Nam June Paik Art Center, Yongin, Korea) and many others. She has been expressing ideas of new relationship between “artifact” and “nature” through her art-making. Using old tools, useless machines, instruments, and antique objects in corporate with light, sound and electromagnetic wave, she creates her own circuit and makes mixed media installation works.

My concept for my art-making is to search a new relationship between “artifact” and “nature”.
“Artifact” and “nature” is not only the opposite schema. For instance, a computer malfunction is whether the artificial or nature matter? To search an answer to those questions, I started my art making. Sudden errors and accidental matters that happen in many different situations show obscure phenomenon in-between artificial/ natural and let us te-think about the relation between them. – Yuko MOHRI, 2013.
