Art unit CHAOS*LOUNGE, known for its approach utilizing a critical stance towards contemporary Japanese art, is here at F/T making its first foray into “theatre”, following success in the online and otaku art fields. The stage for this work is the sacred ground of Japan’s otaku geeks, Akihabara, now like a subculture theme park. It’s an area where key examples of Japanese pop culture are created, but also a site of mass consumption and consumerism. What mark has 3.11 and the Fukushima nuclear crisis left on local subculture? CHAOS*LOUNGE will investigate this question using countless “characters” in two installations using Akiba motifs.
