About the Exhibition

Melvin Moti (born 1977, The Netherlands) produces works grounded in intensive research that explore neurological, scientific and historical processes in relation to visual culture.
MAM Project 021 will be a solo exhibition introducing Moti's work for the first time in Japan, and will showcase Cluster Illusion, a new series of textile pieces. Combining delicate Japanese komon patterns with star maps, Cluster Illusion, examines the universal human tendency to conjure up pictures and grand visions from random dots and abstract figures.
