Exhibitions

Oneness
12 April 2008 - 15 June 2008

Introducing the top-notch world artists to Ukraine, the PinchukArtCentre presented a solo exhibition of Mariko Mori, one of the most seminal artists coming out of Japan in last fifty years. It was the first exhibition of her works in the Central and Eastern Europe ever. The exhibition showcased works created during last 15 years: staged photography, 3-D video and installations, including/ probably, the most impressive Wave UFO (1999-2002), Oneness (2003), Transcirle (2004) and Tom NA H-IU (2005-2006). Also, some Mariko Mori’s videos were displayed in the PinchukArtCentre’s video-lounge (5th floor).

In her recent works Mori discovers the cosmological experience of our forefathers. For this purpose, she visited and documented all kinds of megalithic monuments in both Japan and Scotland. These formed the basis for photographs and a series of ultra-high-tech installations. Akin to megaliths and stone circles used to make time tangible, these installations react to certain events in the universe being a present-day translation of the ancient models.
