This event has ended.
Presenting Junichi Mori’s first exhibition of “hito-gata” (human-shaped) works. The exhibition is composed of selected memories: the painting of a girl by a certain painter, the cast of a TV drama taking place in the America of the Sixties, the words of a philosopher, photographs in a book, images and pieces of information; all transfigured into statues and paintings.
“Tetany” is a medical term describing a state of contraction induced by over-stimulation of the nerves and muscles causing the fingers and toes to bend. The artist chose this word to unite these different pieces, which otherwise appear disconnected.
