Preview: Chim↑Pom | 'Why Open?'
17 May 2018 | 6–8pm
White Rainbow, 47 Mortimer Street, London, W1W 8HJ
White Rainbow is proud to announce Why Open? – a solo exhibition by the renowned artist collective Chim↑Pom (formed 2005, Tokyo, Japan).
Comprising Ryuta Ushiro, Yasutaka Hayashi, Ellie, Masataka Okada, Motomu Inaoka, and Toshinori Mizuno, Chim↑Pom’s work includes interventions through performance, video, painting, installation, curating and organising events. Sharp social critique underpins the group’s work, and the collective is unafraid to cause controversy in the service of their message.
In recent years, the group has realised projects in cities around the world, reflecting on the role of public space and borders. Why Open? brings together a selection of work from projects in the Fukushima Nuclear Zone, the U.S.– Mexico border, in Tokyo and in Taiwan.
