MAKOTO MORIMURA   森村 誠 

 

1976 born in Kofu, Japan

 

 

Osaka-based Morimura began purchasing copies of Japan’s most prominent English-language newspaper (namely The Japan Times) and then used correction fluid to delete every letter of the alphabet besides “h,” “o,” “p” and “e.” The results are 120 pages of newsprint scrubbed of everything but photographs and those four letters. The exhibition then traveled to Japan and was on display at Tokio Out of Place, a gallery in Tokyo’s Minami-Azabu district.
