Mariko Mori “Central”

poster for Mariko Mori “Central”

This event has ended.

From the interactive sculpture corresponding to supernova explosions in far reaches of the galaxy, to installations inspired by Jomon-era stone circles, the work of Mariko Mori reconciles the past with the future and gives shape to an invisible energy that saturates the universe.

Standing gracefully at the center of the exhibition is “Divine Stone VI”(2019-), Mori’s latest 1.2 meter-high acrylic sculpture akin to a giant mineral or faceted gemstone. Its hard, transparent surface is created by applying dichroic coating, engineered to split particular wavelengths of light, while accentuating a color spectrum.

Mounted in circular-shaped aluminum encasing, “Radiant Being” (2019) is Mori’s latest series of drawings with metallic pastel pigments processed through three-dimensional computer graphics.

A digital version of “Dream Temple” (1997-1999), a source of inspiration for “Central”, will be released online for the duration of the exhibition period to facilitate the viewer’s own transcendental experience.



from September 11, 2020 to October 17, 2020
