Wako Works of Art

Right next door to the Mori Art Museum, Wako Works of Art specialises in high-minded conceptualism, featuring big-name artists such as Gerhard Richter, Fiona Tan, Joan Jonas, and Wolfgang Tillmans. One of the gallery’s leading Japanese artists, Shizuka Yokomizo, made her name by posting letters through strangers’ doors in the UK, asking them to pose for a photograph in their front window at a specific hour after dark, in return for a print. The sometimes vulnerable, sometimes defiant postures Yokomizo’s subjects adopt makes for an unsettling but poignant exploration of voyeurism, exhibitionism and anonymity in portraiture.
