Morimura Yasumasa - Want To Change The World? Be Seriously Unserious

Publisher Lixil

ISBN 9784864800464

Idea Code 20210

Yasumasa Morimura began creating self-portraits by placing himself in works by other (famous) artists in 1985 and has since continued to explore this thematic approach. This publication appears despite the cancellation of a corresponding exhibition at the Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art & Design, guest curated by the Japanese appropriation artist. Rather than a “typical” exhibition in which works are organised according to time periods and techniques, it draws from Morimura’s unique approach and introduces works divided across six themes. With its shift in perspective, the concept considers something that would never be realised in an ordinary collection exhibition.
