This event has ended.

Shojono Tomo has continued to push his practice upon a singular story devised within himself, developing with his own distinct perspective and imagination, characters and compositions imbued with humor, impact and color, reaching beyond the contemporary art scene to cross genres of fashion, music and more.
In his first solo show in 9 years, Tomo takes inspiration from the famed manga artist Kazuo Umezu’s metaphysical work “Watashi wa Shingo“ (I’m Shingo). In this series, a love story between elementary school students Satoru and Marin, there is a particular scene in which Marin sends a robot to Satoru with the message “Shall we get married? Press Y for yes, N for no.” And another “Shall we have children? Press Y for yes, N for no.” The answer to which Satoru wasted no time in pressing Y. Here Tomo unveils work largely never seen in Japan before and takes the opportunity to reflect of his artistic practice to date.
