Sion Sono: Hisohiso Boshi

Koenji's famously chaotic Kita-Kore Building gets a new artist-run pop-up gallery this summer, as the Chim-Pom collective and secondhand shop Garter team up to put on regularly irregular exhibits. Opening honours go to director Sion Sono, now a major mainstream name (e.g. Shinjuku Swan and Tokyo Tribe) but originally an avant-garde auteur and enfant terrible of Japanese cinema. In addition to displays of Sono's installation art and an intro to his upcoming 'happening art' piece, Hachiko Project, the exhibit provides a sneak peek at Hisohiso Boshi (scheduled for 2016), the director's hotly anticipated new film on the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.
