Mariko Mori’s ethereal installations, films and photographs reconnect ancient rituals and beliefs with contemporary life through the use of cutting edge technology, often custom-designed to enable the realisation of her work. She was born in Tokyo, Japan and studied at the Chelsea College of Art and Design, before moving to New York to study at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Mori has exhibited throughout the world and her work is held in a range of international collections including Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, The Prada Foundation, Milan and The Guggenheim Museum, New York. She has also received numerous awards, including the Menzione d’onore at the 47th Venice Biennale. She is currently represented by Sean Kelly Gallery, New York.
