In our information saturated world, we have no chance to escape from image, whilst at the same time we are wearied by their constant confrontation. Perhaps the solution is to play with them, as Sentaro Miki does here.

Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton
at Louis Vuitton Special Exhibition Space (Chiyoda area)
(2016-04-23 - 2016-06-19)

Curated by Olivier Saillard, it retraces Louis Vuitton’s great journey from 1854 till today, through archives of the Family’s founding members to those who create the Louis Vuitton of today.Since the end of the 19th century, the House has always maintained strong ties with Japan. From the mon(family crest) inspirations of the Monogram canvas, to the long list of renowned Japanese clients such as the political leader Taisuke Itagaki, and the collaborations with Japanese contemporary artists from Murakami to Kusama. The thematic journey conceived and designed by Robert Carsen tells the story of the House in 10 chapters including one entirely dedicated to Japan. It opens with the absolute symbol of Louis Vuitton: an antique malle, an innately modern design, it fast became the House’s icon, epitomizing Louis Vuitton’s audacious spirit. The exhibition presents objects and documents from Louis Vuitton’s archives, as well as, a selection of pieces on loan from the Palais Galliera, Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris and from private collectors. Some of the trunks include specially commissioned objects by craftsmen from Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto. A section dedicated to craftsmanship, with craftsmen from the Louis Vuitton ateliers closes the exhibition. The exhibition will be held in a bespoke structure near Kioicho, the neighbourhood in Tokyo, where in 1978 Louis Vuitton opened its first store in Japan.

MAM Screen 003: Crossing Visions - Japanese Landscapes Seen from Outside
at Mori Art Museum (Roppongi, Nogizaka area)
(2016-03-26 - 2016-07-10)

“MAM Screen 003,” the third edition of the video screening series, features video works selected by the four co-curators of the “Roppongi Crossing 2016: My Body, Your Voice” that runs concurrently. The exhibition attempts to examine Japan from a diversity of perspectives, focusing on landscapes of Japan as seen by overseas artists. Fragments of Japanese landscapes captured through their lenses include the effects of the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, wartime memories, and neighborhood scenery. Opportunities for artists to work internationally are growing, and many of the artists participating in “Roppongi Crossing,” our triennial exhibition series that focuses on Japan’s art scene, are active outside Japan. Today, it is by no means an easy task to delimit the “Japan” of “Japan’ s art scene.” The perspectives of the overseas artists may help us discover aspects of Japan not normally noticed by people who call Japan their home.

Gaetan Kubo “Emergencies! 028 ー Research & Destroy”
at NTT ICC Inter Communication Center (Shinjuku area)
(2016-05-28 - 2016-08-06)

In 1946, just after the war, Japan faced a shortage of many resources, including the materials to make money. The cartridges used during the war and other scrap metal were recycled to make 50 sen coins. Gaetan Kubo in the same way takes a keen interest in how materials of one object and can be used to produce other things, exploring the history and cause of such transformations and attempts to reconstruct these changes in his own work. Here he takes the 50 sen coin, melts it down and attempts to restore it to its original form as a bullet. He also takes the peeled paint from Tokyo Tower, which was built from the scrap metal of US tanks, to create drawings. And creates earthenware from the “Ghost Chimney” of the Senju Thermal Power Station decommissioned in 1964, and made originally using the scrap metal of a Bordeaux battleship. In this exhibition objects, maquettes, documentary video, photographs and diagrams are used to trace these cycles of materials. As part of a new work he follows the story of the destroyer his Great Grandfather served upon during the war and how this was later reused by the self defense force as an escort ship.
