Residency Dates
  • Jan 17th 2017 to Apr 2nd 2017

Morita was born in 1973 and
now lives and works in Tokyo. He finished his MA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, University
of London in 2002. The concept driving Morita’s artworks is the mandate to pay
attention to things generally left unnoticed, such as ordinary objects and
phenomena in daily life, and to try to visualize humorously the elements which
are intrinsically contained within them such as multilayered contexts and
relationships. His recent exhibitions include: River Town (2015) at the Nihonbashi Institute of Contemporary
Arts, Tokyo, Japan; Mono No Aware: The Beauty of Things (2013),
at The State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia; and MOT Annual 2012 Making Situations, Editing Landscapes (2012),
at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, in Tokyo, Japan. Read more at aoyamameguro.com.
