Mariko Mori: Rebirth

The second exhibition I visited at The Royal Academy of Arts was 'Mariko Mori: Rebirth'. This includes some of New York based Japanese artist Mori’s most acclaimed works from the last 11 years, alongside new works created especially for the exhibition. Starting and ending with the death and birth of a star, the cycle of life and rebirth is an important theme of the show, which includes photography, works on paper, sound works, as well as sculpture and large scale immersive installations and environments that invite contemplation.

I found this exhibition exciting, inspiring and mesmerising. Sitting and gazing at some of the large scale light installations made me feel instantly calm and peaceful. I also loved the framed sketches using pencil and glitter. I assume the use of glitter represented stardust. Tickets are £10 for adults, concessions available. The exhibition runs until Sunday 17th February 2013. A must see!
