SPECIAL PROGRAMS | Yoriko Mizushiri Retrospective

Yoriko Mizushiri

My encounter with Mizushiri’s animation came after a recommendation from a friend who saw a graduation exhibition at Joshibi University of Art and Design. My friend said, “There is an animation that Taku would like.” It didn’t take long to get a full sense of Mizushiri’s world through works like Kappo, Futon, and Maku.

Her use of music and unique flow of time appeal to the senses of smell, touch, and taste, rather than sight and hearing. More than eroticism, I have always thought that her works are kind of closer to the surprisingly satisfactory texture I encounter when akami tuna sashimi melts in my mouth.
