Hikari Shimoda recently made her debut in Hong Kong at Over the Influence with her latest solo show, "Can Pop Art Show the Way to Nirvana?" The reception took place on January 30th and was attended my fans and press from all over the globe.
Highlights of the exhibition include the display of "The Catastrophe of Death and Regeneration", the tittular work of Hikari's museum retrospective at the Asahi Art Museum in Japan last summer, and a special "glow in the dark" room featuring her new series, "Can Pop Conquer Despair?"
About the title of her exhibition, Hikari shares: “The word “POP” in pop art means popular culture, mass production and consumption take place as one of major themes of pop art. We are living in a world of mass production and mass consumption. Every kind of things is produced in quantity, and everyone is consuming. The same thing happens to art or literature. In other words, we are in a world where numerous words and images are consumed."
