Rebirth: Recent Work by Mariko Mori

Friday, October 11 — Sunday, January 12

Flatstone is laid out in the shape of a Jōmon-era home. These homes used large rocks as a floor, and in the center of each home was a hearth, shown here as a square. In the center of the hearth, an acrylic vase made from the mold of an extremely rare suien-doki (water vase), rests.

An icon of 1990s Japanese pop art, the visionary artist Mariko Mori has always transformed herself effortlessly and faster than anyone else into the future. Japan Society Gallery presents her latest countenance in this major solo exhibition, Rebirth, as a significant artistic statement by Mori. The entire gallery space is transformed into Mori's world through 35 sculptures, drawings, photographs, sound and video works, strung together into a narrative of birth, death and rebirth—a continuous circle of life force that the artist observes on a cosmic scale. Journey through space, time and consciousness in this immersive installation.
