Together with Mohri, David Horvitz from the U.S. His works, which mainly manipulate concepts such as time and distance and transform them into witty, poetic and conceptual art, are also presented under the theme of “Summer Rain”. Among the works in this exhibition, ” Stamps” is one of the most striking works on the theme of “Summer Rain”. They are a delight to people’s eyes. Stamps representing various states of water such as rain, river, ocean, etc., as well as stamps representing “you” will be placed on the paper so that the audience can create a poem for themselves.

 

If Mohri focuses on the cycles of natural phenomena that occur in the artifact, the space used by humans, Horvitz focuses on the relationship between water, the ocean and humans and finding meaning in it.” When the ocean sounds” was inspired by the ideas of marine biologist Rachel Carson, who wrote about the similarities between the composition of human blood and seawater. Another of his attempts to bring about a metaphorical relationship between humans and water can be seen in his work ” Stamp”, where Mohri studies water in a controlled environment, whereas water is found in an open environment, and their slightly different approaches to water, rain, phenomena and humans is what makes this exhibition interesting. interesting aspect of this exhibition. Not only the exhibition itself, but the fact that two world-renowned artists, Yuko Mohri and David Horvitz, are presenting their works together makes it a noteworthy exhibition in the contemporary art scene happening in Tokyo right now. The exhibition will run from July 19, 2019 to September 7, 2019, concluding with a summer vacation from August 4 to 19, 2019.SCAI THE BATHHOUSE https://www.scaithebathhouse.com/en/
