Solo show by Yuko Mohri (1980, Kanagawa, Japan).

Mohri produces installations composed of mechanical elements made out of household utensils and other everyday objects. She often resorts to the Japanese philosophy of You-no-bi, re-signifying these objects with a refined gaze, observing beauty in the ordinary. Her solo shows have most notably included those presented at the Camden Arts Centre (London, England, 2018) and at the Mori Art Museum (Tokyo, Japan 2016). Her work has been featured in various group shows, including the 5th Ural Industrial Biennial of Contemporary Art (Russia, 2019); the Centro de Arte Contemporáneo Wifredo Lam (Havana, Cuba, 2018); the 14th Bienal de Lyon (France, 2017); the Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2016 (India, 2016); and the Yokohama Triennale 2014 (Kanagawa, Japan, 2014). She lives in Tokyo.

Curatorship: Natasha Barzaghi Geenen
