Hiroshi Mori (XYZA)


Born in Tokyo in 1977.
Mori elaborates on the simulation art and appropriation art of the 80s by integrating his own Japanese background, exploring whether artistic expression could arise out of over-consumed and junked subculture. His works combine existing images of classic and pop art masterpieces with those of anime, manga and video games with the intention of creating some kind of chemical reaction with the viewer, whether it be familiarity, sympathy or antipathy. He challenges the idea of originality in art, by constantly adopting new industrial technologies and materials and crossing the old with the new.
