This event has ended.
Born in 1976 in Kanazawa, Japan, Eiki Mori currently lives and works in Tokyo. After he received a prestigious Kimura Ihei Award for his photo book “intimacy” (2013) in 2013, his practice become known to a larger audience and he started attracting attention as an artist with a proclivity for activism who produced numerous photographs, video works and performances offering portraits of male subjects on the theme of differences between the sexes.
After a four year wait, his brand new work “Family Regained” is comprised of works on the theme of family as community that have been shot over an extended period. The photographs have been captured using a self-timer setting, allowing Mori himself to appear in the photographs as a member of the families depicted. Through his images, Mori challenges the modern concept of family that we often take to be universal, instead exploring the bonds of family in terms of community in a broader sense, hereby drawing attention to what actually constitutes “family.”
This exhibition will showcase his latest work, with performance videos derived from “Family Regained” and original prints of the works that appear in the photo book introduced.
