Yuko Mohri’s art seeks to make invisible energy such as electricity, magnetism, and motion visible. To this aim, she approaches installation and sculpture not to compose (or construct) but to call attention to “phenomena” that constantly shift according to various conditions such as the environment. In recent years, she has also explored this idea through video and photography.


Recent personal exhibitions include “I/O (In Oslo)” (Atelier Nord, Oslo, 2021), “Parade (a Drip, a Drop, the End of the Tale)” (Japan House São Paulo, São Paulo, 2021), “SP. by yuko mohri” (Ginza Sony Park, Tokyo, 2020), “Voluta” (Camden Arts Centre, London, 2018), and “Assume That There Is Friction and Resistance” (Towada Art Center, Aomori, 2018).
