Previous artist-in-residence Yuko Mohri returns to Camden Arts Centre to present a new installation.
Music and sound are central to Mohri’s practice. In this new commission, error, improvisation and feedback figure in an acoustic environment that maps shifting relationships between material things and conceptual propositions.
Informed by Japanese concepts such as Suki (the state of openness) as well as the renewal of an animistic worldview in the ideas put forward by speculative realism, Mohri’s installation is attuned to the inherent moods or feelings that architectural spaces are imbued with and reveals the interconnectedness of the built environment with natural processes.
The exhibition will be punctuated with a number of live collaborative performances between Mohri and the internationally acclaimed composer, pianist and electronic musician Ryuichi Sakamoto, and composer and musician Akio Suzuki – a pioneer of experimental sound art.
