Mariko Mori show continues in London

The Royal Academy of Arts’ Mariko Mori exhibition is continuing until the middle of February.

Art fans visiting central London hotels have until February 17th to see the show of work by the US-based Japanese artist at the Burlington Gardens gallery.

Her first London show in 14 years, the Rebirth exhibition features many of Mori’s key pieces as well as art work specially created for the Royal Academy.

The main focus of the show is on life and death and Mori presents exhibits ranging from paintings, sculptures to large installation pieces that use sound to convey their meaning.

Throughout her career Mori has been praised for hew way of combining traditional Japanese culture with more contemporary influences.

Amy Dawson, writing a review of Rebirth for the Metro, explained: “Glowing with an iridescent colour palette and frequently featuring totemic or pod-like shapes, the exhibition exemplifies Mori’s interest in the Jomon era in Japan and European Celtic history.

“Yet physics fans might be just as interested in the way it embraces astronomy and science.”

Admission to the exhibition costs £10 for adults and the gallery is a short walk from Piccadilly Circus and Green Park London Underground stations.

Burlington Gardens is open from 10am to 6pm Saturday through to Thursday and also remains open to 10pm on Fridays for those that may want to combine a visit with one of the area’s top restaurants or bars.

The Royal Academy of Arts was established in 1768 and has played a key role in establishing the names of many famous artists ranging from John Constable to Anish Kapoor.
