|TOMOKO NAGAO: FUWARI -unflatable sculpture-|
Movement "micropop" here in Italy, I'm trying to make it known through the arts and social networks, unfortunately it is a slow path, only the young give me satisfaction. Obviously young people in Italy do not have a purchasing power.
For example, the exhibition "Winter Garden" was produced in 2009 under the curation of art critic Midori Matsui as a sequel to the exhibition The Door into Summer (Art Tower Mito, Japan, 2007). Winter Garden features 35 works—drawings, paintings, and video works — by 14 young Japanese artists active from the latter half of the 1990s throughout the first decade of the 21st century. The artists present their distinctive views of world through the combination of fragments, imbuing the obsolete or the commonplace with new functions or meaning, a style of _expression that Matsui dubbed “Micropop.”
