Winter Garden: The Exploration of Micropop Imagination in Contemporary Japanese Art

After successful tours in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia Pacific since 2009, the exhibition curated by art critic Midori Matsui has finally arrived in KL. The collection showcases 14 leading contemporary Japanese artists who arrived on the art scene between the late 90s and early 2000s. These 35 works are representative of 'micropop', a term used to describe the worldview of artists who rearrange fragments of information and knowledge to give fresh meaning to what was perceived as old and mundane. One highlight is Lyota Yagi's 'VINYL' consisting of a toy gramophone and a 45-second record made entirely of ice, which plays a temporary tune before the sound melts away on the turntable.
