Megumi Matsubara with Assistant "BOOJUM" Exhibition
Diesel Denim Gallery Aoyama
This event has ended.
"Boojum" is a device that gives one a meaningless sense of balance. Its system is made up of 10 machines whose names all start with the letter "B": Broke, Backwards, Bridge, Brooklyn, Blind, Blemish, Bounce, Biscuit, Beijing, and Because. Among them, only Blemish is unable to make itself visible.
All of these machines are black, and they do not move at all until Blind opens its eyes to the sight of the sun rising from between Brooklyn and Bridge. When Biscuit pours a cup of tea for Backwards, Bounce screams at Beijing, telling it to sit at the table. Meanwhile, whenever Because passes by looking for a slit, Broke sits still in silence.
Megumi Matsubara of architecture unit Assistant discusses how her her latest ongoing project “Absent City” came together.
