Hiroharu Mori, Speech Rehearsals: Students, Housewives, Politicians

Dates:
24 May – 25 June 2010

Location:
MADA Gallery, Monash University Caulfield Campus

Curator:
Kyla McFarlane

Hiroharu Mori presents two major video installations, focusing on ideas of acting, speech and social role playing, together with a selection of new and recent works.

Working largely in video, installation and public interventions, Mori makes critical works that comment on the mechanics of mass culture. Through his ongoing exploration of slippages in translation, questions of identity and the tensions and contradictions of everyday life, Mori never losses sight of the capacity contemporary art has for poetry and play.
