Keita Mori盛 圭太

profile

Born in Hokkaido, Japan in 1981, and lives and works in Paris. Keita Mori realizes his drawings using a special technique which he has developed since 2011: the taut wires with a glue gun. He thus creates spaces, through accumulation and entanglement of wires: objects, systems in which the cracks – or « bug » the way he calls them – reveal themselves from the fragmented spaces, in motion, as provisional.
