— ART, FASHION & MORE !
Stephen Mushin, the Melbourne-based artist, brings a new and multifaceted perspective into contemporary life in Tokyo.
His first solo exhibition in Japan, “Now, If, What, Then – Farming Tokyo”, reflects the core of Mushin’s view of Tokyo through a wide range of his installations such as drawings and a magnet wall which he’s used for workshops.
Mushin’s vision for the exhibition is not only to enrich people’s creativity and aesthetic keeping the Tokyo beat alive in their heart but also that people will change the way they perceive ecological perspectives in fun and positive ways. His main focus is on Tokyo’s rich food culture; he brilliantly makes use of fictional yet realizable machines – which means he’s designed all based on scientific theory – as a means of communication to notice/solve the environmental issues like ever-increasing amounts of garbage in the big city.
His installations full of positive energy are capturing the most fascinating subjects among the cuteness. And now I re-think about what I hope for this city – remembering Mushin‘s brightest smile at the exhibit.
Stephen Mushin’s Exhibition “Now, If, What, Then – Farming Tokyo“ is on view at Spiral Garden on the first floor of Spiral located at 5-6-23 Minami-Aoyama, Minato-ku in Tokyo until Sunday the 31st of August.
