TartarosJapan “Naraku Playground— Fusion of Art and Music”
This event has ended.
The Naraku Playground is a place from another time, where mythical beasts emerge from the far corners of the Naraku Kingdom. When these creatures come out to play, the invisible can be seen, the inaudible can be heard, and unspeakable words can form. The mythical beasts of these works are inspired by classical mythology and the traditions of manga, animation, and character design. The artist’s envy of both antiquity and the future are deeply engraved in them.
The amphibian-like main figure, “SatanBouya”, is a distortion of the spirits of ancient Persia and manga characters. Lacking a mouth, it fits with the Naraku Playground’s theme of seeing the invisible, hearing the inaudible, and forming unspeakable words. These installations combining music with painting and sculpture allow visitors to see, hear, feel, and enjoy TataorsJapan’s “Naraku Playground” in a traditional Japanese garden designed for strolling. The artist hopes visitors will experience another world where these mythical beasts fly, howl, and run rampant.
*The terrace is lit up after sunset allowing the exhibition to be open until 20:00
