MORI Akane

‘’Obsession’’ is the theme of my work and I am always trying to find an expression only Printmaking  can realize. A motif changes time to time. Sometimes it is cloths and sometimes it is myself or people around me. This exhibition displays my new work, including one which won an award in the Annual Exhibition of the Japan Society of Printmaking 2018. I do hope you will enjoy my work with this opportunity.

Artist Statement
Each time I see a mirror, it reflects a figure named me. I had the feeling that my body doesn’t belong to me ever since I can remember. I was wondering why my hands and legs move, why my body is regarded as a woman’s body and why this body represents my existence. I wonder who can assert that this body the mirror reflects and a picture shows, is me. I have worked with Printmaking. In the same time, the daily life like I am looking over from a cockpit and the wonder of my existence has captured my interest and made me question. The printmaking has many characteristics no other arts techniques have. One of them is that Printmaking is not an original work of art, but is done through a plate. A picture is a work painted directly on canvas using a brush, in the other hand in the field of printmaking an artist works on a printing matrix, coats it with ink and cover it with a paper. Curiously, this resulting print has different features from the original image. It is sometimes a happy betrayal and sometimes is just a sad change. Though for me personally, it was a deja vu. I have had same experiences many times before by watching myself in a mirror. If I assume a printing matrix is my body I can recognize through my sense and spirit, then my body seen in a mirror and a picture becomes a printed image. The more I work in printmaking, the more the distance between body and spirit gets close. My body was cut into pieces and comes to be a plate or a picture. My body in the 3-D world appears in the 2-D and it gets more object. This process helped me to feel more my existence. On a printing image, I add lines which come from my feelings, and then a human being named me is completed. I have never understood why I exist, though I have understood it better through my work of printmaking, which has a similar relation to body and spirits. I have pursued a never finding answers and unite bodies and spirits. I continue making ‘’me’’ using the printmaking.
