Chihiro Mori - Omoide In My Head
|Author||G. Ritter ; M. Tsuzuku|
|Publisher||Torch Press / Fumi Ishino|
For Chihiro Mori, the world is an endlessly chaotic place filled with wonder and contradiction. With her critical view of mainstream society, the artist turns inward, exploring dreamlike visions fraught with self-doubt and scepticism toward institutions of power, authority, and indoctrination. Taking fragments of urban life as its building blocks, her work incorporates signs and symbols from our daily lives and the darker visions from our sleepless nights. Her paintings, drawings, and sculptures enlist surrealist techniques to blur the line between nightmare and reality, yet remind us to embrace the absurd, the irrational, and the nonsensical as a means to make sense of life’s inconvenient truths.
