MISAKO & ROSEN is pleased to announce Territory, our third exhibition with Tokyo-based artist Mie Morimoto. Morimoto presented the solo exhibition Ongoing with Cannon Gallery, Tokyo (2015) and was a participant in the exhibition Contemporary Tales from the Province II: Susaki Artist in Residence (2014). Morimoto exhibited the series pH at MISAKO & ROSEN in 2013.
Morimoto’s photographs’ particular quality – nuance – is a result of her process; with no pretense to a general objectivity and no rootedness in a particular ideology, Morimoto photographs the everyday – things, places, people, times – from her point of view. As the city of Tokyo undergoes change in advance of the 2020 Olympics, the territory that people inhabit remains constant. When viewed in the future, Morimoto’s photographs of this time will reveal what we not possibly read in the present.
