Willa and Gallermic Tanaka Opening Reception

Nude photos filled magical, ARTROOM for an exhibition’s first night.

In Photo Reports by Sophie Knight 2010-01-23

The recent “WILLA” event at magical, ARTROOM, saw people descend on the Ebisu gallery to take in Gallermic (aka Galle or The Fashion Ramone) Tanaka’s photos. The exhibition opening was followed a few days later by a party called “The Absentee Owner” organized by socialite Vivienne Sato.

The artist himself in a poncho — very like his native Peru.Rob Judges (artist and DJ) in front of the photo wall of Galle's last long stretch in Tokyo — a big wall of photos from various parties, some of which he organized himself (as Narziss, TFR).

A wall of three photos of Galle's muse.

A projector went through a slideshow of different photos.

More photos of the opening can be found on the magical, ARTROOM blog.

Sophie Knight

Sophie Knight. Born in what she likes to refer to as the ‘Saitama of London’, Sophie's fetish for foreign languages and hatred of puddles meant she always had itchy feet. After enduring a homestay in Fukuoka and bussing her way through South America, she studied Social Anthropology in London, which convinced her of the essential essence of mankind... and that she had to get away from England. She came back to Japan after a brief stint in Barcelona to find some of the electric nuttiness and zarusoba she had been craving. She now spends her days deciphering Japanese newspapers, translating, writing a zine, speeding around Tokyo on her racing bike to discover tucked-away galleries, making bentos, injuring herself pole-dancing and getting used to the fact that nothing interesting is ever at ground-level in this city. » See other writings
