Japan Society is having a show, Yasumasa Morimura. Ego Obscura.
Yasumasa Morimura is one of my favorite artists. I haven’t heard about him for a while so I was very happy to see his work again. As you see, his works are funny and witty. He transformed his body to greatest artists and beyond. He could be anybody.
One of Japan’s most prolific and versatile contemporary artists, Yasumasa Morimura. Ego Obscura highlights Morimura’s 30-year-long project of excavating “the self” from layers of art history, Japanese postwar history, and personal history.
