Ends in 18 days

This is the third solo exhibition by Mori at Ken Nakahashi. His first sound installation will be shown. A horn speaker, used to send small sounds far away, will emit whispers of various voices that read Mori’s poems in multiple languages. In the galley space, these voices shall sound nostalgic but at the same time be felt as if they are heard for the first-time, coming from somewhere around the globe. It will be combined and be composed of sounds and moving images. In conjunction with the exhibition, the gallery will publish Mori’s first photo essay “Letter to My Son,” which includes 25 short Japanese-English essays serialized in Shukan Dokushojin, still pictures from Mori’s video work of the same title, and an unpublished poem.
