This event has ended.

This latest exhibition will feature several sculptures made of plastic and plush toys.

Kagami's debut solo exhibition entitled "Milk Man" included drawings and sculptures presented in the viewing room of Taka Ishii Gallery in 2003, and his second exhibition "Penis" took place in gallery.sora. in 2005.

Kagami’s works are characterized by his simple expression of conflicting ideas. Pure and virginal soft toys and plastic objects created for babies and children are boldly combined with things that represent sex, violence and excrement. These two worlds, which would never crossover naturally, are merged together and transform themselves into giggle-inducing, amiable, yet bizarre pieces of art which invoke a horrific, natural human instinct. This is achieved through Kagami’s sharp sense of color, form and distinctive ideas.
