Mori was born in Tokyo and worked as a fashion model in the late 1980’s, an experience which is reflected in her early works. The underlying theme through most of her works is the juxtaposition of Eastern mythology and Western culture.
In 1992 she was part of New York’s Whitney Museum’s Independent Study Program. Mori was one of the “indisputable” stars at the Venice Biennale in 1997. Her work has been seen in many places around the world, such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, the Serpentine Gallery in London and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.
