Yuko Mohri: ‘I’m very curious about organic ecosystems’

The Japanese artist Yuko Mohri’s exhibition at White Rainbow is titled Moré Moré [Leaky], and follows recent exhibitions in Taiwan, Japan and the US. Winner of the 2015 Grand Prix Nissan Art Award, Mohri undertook two residencies in London in 2016, the first at the Victoria and Albert Museum and the second at Camden Arts Centre

Mohri studied media art with sound art (which she prefers to call “music without musicians”), at the University of Tokyo, and has collaborated with leading Japanese avant-garde musicians Otomo Yoshihide and Ryuichi Sakamoto. Through “sensing hidden energy, usually ignored”, Mohri’s work brings together image, sound and narrative, and asks “how nature and un-nature could have a relationship?”

Mohri talked to Studio International before the opening of her exhibition Moré Moré [Leaky] and explained some of her inspirations and processes.
