Yasumasa Morimura at Thaddeaus Ropac

The brilliant and funny Yasumasa Morimura exhibition titled Requiem for the XX Century at Thaddeus Ropac.

Morimura transforms himself into heroic and iconic portraits. This portrait of himself as Che was hung facing a small video screen previewing the live recording of the character.

Morimura’s work has used icons from Western Art historical traditions, for this exhibition as a reference he used very iconic cultural historic figures.
