New York-based contemporary artist Mariko Mori made a name for herself during the 1990s, creating works such as “Play With Me,” which incorporated the Japanese otaku (obsessive fan) influences of anime and cosplay into art. Her recent works, however, are in striking contrast with her early works and show a more minimalist style.
In this exhibition, which comes 10 years after “Tom Na H-iu,” Mori’s last show at Scai The Bathhouse, the artist is showcasing “Cycloid,” her latest series of aluminum sculptures covered with iridescent pearlized paint.
Scai The Bathhouse; Kashiwayu-Ato, 6-1-23 Yanaka, Taito-ku, Tokyo. Nippori Stn. 12 p.m.-6 p.m. Free. Closed Sun., Mon., holidays. 03-3821-1144; www.scaithebathhouse.com
