MAM Collection 008: Crows - Aida Makoto + Chim↑Pom

2018.10.6 [Sat] - 2019.1.20 [Sun]

Participating Artists

Aida Makoto, Chim↑Pom

Crows appear in myths around the world as good-luck omens and symbols of the sun, while also being repeatedly depicted as symbols of evil and ill fortune, due to the association of their black feathers and carrion-chomping habits with death. Taking these more-than-a-little ambiguous birds as their motif, Aida Makoto and Chim↑Pom, both known for employing unconventional viewpoints and techniques to get to the heart of social and political issues, reflect various aspects of modern society.
