overview
Born in Osaka, Japan in 1951. Currently lives and works in Osaka. Ever since Morimura created his self-portrait photograph in 1985, disguising himself as Van Gogh in one of his self-portrait paintings, the artist has incessantly produced “self-portrait-like artworks” where Morimura alters himself into “others” beyond time, race and gender. While maintaining his practice to become someone other than himself, the artist gazes at the indisputable fact that he is still himself and continues to question its meaning. Understanding both the contemporary and historical framework and inserting his own analysis of others, their artistic achievements and historical events, Morimura continues to employ his own body as well as photography, video and performance into his art practice, which has influenced many.
