The exhibition will focus on three important bodies of work: "Requiem" in which Morimura recreates iconic photographs relating to political and cultural life; the "Actors" series in which he assumes the persona of Hollywood luminaries such as Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor; and his "Art History" photographs in which he painstakingly restages well known European paintings.
