Mariko Hori

Mellowing the corners

Mariko Hori is a Japanese visual artist based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. 

She studied architecture, but was more attracted by the aesthetic aspects of the deterioration of buildings through ageing 
than she was by contemporary or innovative building techniques. She was particularly interested in the strong sense of an enduring existence that attaches to old buildings and artefacts.
In her subsequent career as an artist, her interests have revolved around the concept of 'atmosphere' and her installations often study alternative atmospheric experiences 
through modest yet intentional placement of carefully chosen objects to give texture to the space and time between structures.
