MORIMURA has been working as a conceptual photographer and filmmaker for over three decades and has become one of the most important representatives for “staged photography.”

About

In Cooperation with the Luhring Augustine Gallery (NYC), works of the Japanese artist YASMUMASA MORIMURA will be shown 30th April at Friedrichshof Collection (Zurndorf) and STADTRAUM (Vienna).

MORIMURA hast been working as a conceptual photographer and filmmaker for over three decades and has become one of the most important representatives for “staged photography.” With the use of props, costumes, makeup, and digital manipulation, he has turned himself into subjects of Western art and cultural canon. Through restaging and reinvention of iconic photographs and paintings of art history he not only challenges the traditional views associated with these subjects, but also comments on Japan’s relationship with absorption and integration of Western culture. 

The focus of the exhibition at Friedrichshof lies on MORIMURA’s emblematic photographic series One Hundred M’s self-portraits. At STADTRAUM three representative examples from the work Las Meninas renacen de noche will be shown. In both locations MORIMURA’s video Mishima will be demonstrated.
