Chim↑Pom: Scrap and Build – Street
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Still on a high after the hugely successful 'So see you again tomorrow, too?' exhibition, for which they commandeered an entire Kabukicho building and put on a DIY installation and performance series that commented critically on Tokyo's pre-2020 obsession with 'redevelopment', headline-grabbing art collective Chim↑Pom now return to their Koenji stamping ground for a new show. In addition to a selection of all-new work, they'll be showing off 'Street', a project realised together with architect Takashi Suo. A street like any other, open to the public 24 hours a day, it's a 'piece of public space within private space', the private part being the Kita-Kore Building through which the road passes. 'Street' can be viewed and walked on for free at any time, while the rest of the exhibition costs ¥500 and is open from 2pm to 8pm.
