This event has ended.

Gallery Pepin 3 will present Nanami Ishihara’s first exhibition in three years. At first glance, Ishihara’s work may seem like a utopic Japanese version of Greek mythology. However, her portrayals feature nude or swimsuit-clad women in their twenties wearing modern fashion and makeup, layering them with waves and flames or themes from classic literature such as white elephants and dancing lions. The depictions are decorated with patterns such as stars, dots, and swirls. Ishihara breaks the seeming utopia by adding UFOs and airplanes, giving her work a festive yet disturbing air to the imagery.
