Eiji Moribe “Relay”
This event has ended.
Eiji Moribe was born in Aichi Prefecture in 1978 and studied sculpture and modeling at Nagoya University of Arts. After graduating he went on exchange to the U.K. before going to Rome, Italy where he worked as a writer’s assistant. Returning to Japan, he began working at a horse riding club in Gotemba in 2001, working there for five years as an instructor, trainer and organizer. In 2002, Moribe began making artworks that feature horses and horses tack as motifs, focusing on performance and installation based works using actual horses. Currently, he is collecting materials on horses throughout the country and building a narrative about the history and culture that emerges from our relationship with horses from multiple perspectives. While horses are typically an animal understood in economic terms, their presence can occasionally function symbolically, in terms of heroism or of power. These works explore what horses have carried in the past, and what people will carry forward into the future.
