poster for Yasumasa Morimura "Seasons of Passion / A Requiem Season One"

This event has ended.

New works by Yasumasa Morimura under the theme of 'Men', restructuring happenings that occurred to a variety of men.
Morimura says that the history of the 20th century is symbolized by 'men'. Men worked, fought, constructed, and finally brought on destruction, handing over the world to 'women'. Morimura, who has dealt with the theme of 'women' in the past with series such as 'Daughters in Art History' and 'Actresses', switches his focus to 'men', scrutinizing the way human beings lived their lives over the course of history.

Opening party: November 11th, 18:00-20:00
There will be a ten-minute performance from 19:00.

Interview with Morimura
A change in gender for new political series
By Kay Itoi
Special to The Japan Times

"I showed up at the SDF headquarters as Ingrid Bergman, and the officers were so kind, so happy to help me. When I said, 'I need a Jeep,' they said, 'One Jeep, no problem!' I could go there and leave with dignity, as a woman. Yukio Mishima went to there as a man, to launch a coup. When I was leaving, I thought: 'Mishima couldn't get out; he died there.' "

静聴せよ!

彼を初めてみたのはゴッホを倣った時だった。
自らの肉体を以ってで芸術を表現するという芸術家を知ったのもその時だ。

今回三島由紀夫として、我々国民に呼びかける森村。
烈火の季節は、そして20世紀とは。
新しい我らの時代は過去なくして存在しない。

静聴せよ!
これは時代に翻弄される我々への警鐘。
未来の為に散った志士たちのレクイエムである。
