Based in Australia, Ken and Julia Yonetani have been making waves with their socially conscious, often political installation art ever since representing their country at the 2009 Venice Biennale. This exhibit at Ichigaya's Mizuma Gallery is their first solo show in Japan and displays a range of pieces themed around nuclear power and weaponry. Most notable among these is the expansive 'Crystal Palace: The Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of all Nuclear Nations', a collection of chandeliers made from uranium glass and representing the world's nuclear-armed nations. Another highlight is 'Three Wishes', which incorporates influences from the 1957 Disney flick Our Friend the Atom while also using actual wings found on malformed butterflies from Fukushima.
