Yuko Mohri

Curated by Fiammetta Griccioli and Vicente Todolí

Yuko Mohri (Kanagawa, Japan, 1980; lives and works in Tokyo) creates site-specific installations through the use of sound and movement. She often combines ready-made objects with electronic circuits that respond to almost invisible events such as gravity, magnetism, and humidity.
Her humorous compositions hint at the la­tent complexity of the world’s structures and reveal the constant shifting of energy around us. Focusing on transient phenomena that shift according to different conditions, her works create organic ecosystems that re­spond to random elements of the surround­ing space such as air, dust and debris, or temperature. Mohri often incorporates mu­sical instruments to record the impercepti­ble movement of the invisible forces at work, which are later translated into electrical cur­rents that create unpredictable sound com­positions. At other times, the input/output system created by the artist sets off erratic chain reactions within the installations, trans­forming the environment into living spaces that interweave the artificial and the natural.

For her first institutional exhibition in Italy, Yuko Mohri will present numerous installations and sound sculptures, ranging from earlier works to more recent projects, revealing the artist’s unique, intricate assemblages that combine re­configured found objects and imperceptible phenomena. The exhibition will bring to life interactive and elaborate kinetic installations that engage with the presence of visitors, activating the tangible and intangible features of Pirelli HangarBicocca’s industrial environment.

Her works have been exhibited in numerous major institutions such as Atelier Nord, Oslo, Japan House São Paulo (2021); Proj­ect Fulfill Art Space, Taipei (2020, 2018, 2016); Ginza Sony Park, Tokyo (2020); Camden Arts Centre London, Towada Art Center, Aomori, National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto (2018); Fujisa­wa City Art Space, Kanagawa (2017); Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo (2012).
She has also participated in numerous international group exhibi­tions including the Gwangju Biennale (2023); Biennale of Sydney (2022); Asian Art Biennial, Taichung (2021); Bienal de São Paulo, Glasgow international (2021); Asia Pacific Triennial of Contempo­rary Art, Brisbane (2018), Centre Pompidou-Metz, Biennale de Lyon (2017); Kochi-Muziris Biennale, Kochi (2016).
