The young London-based Japanese artist Natsuki Uruma, who specializes in acts of intimacy in unexpected places, certainly has guts. Her past public performances include peeing on a rug in a New York Chanel boutique, performing a pole dance on a London subway and kissing a corpse in an Osaka mortuary. For her first solo show in New York at Rivington Arms, however, Uruma isn’t out to shock. Instead, two music videos and a series of elegant silk-screens clarify the mythical and art-historical references in her work.
