Madsaki Solo Exhibition: “1984”
“1984” features Madsaki’s new series of paintings and sculptures based on Mattel’s Masters of the Universe franchise, including its popular toy line, comic book covers, and action figure packaging. The exhibition title “1984” refers to the year that Masters of the Universe was at the peak of its popularity in the US. Of course, the year also evokes George Orwell’s science fiction novel, but what is the connection between these concepts? This is what visitors are welcomed to discover.
This exhibition, named after that seminal year, features paintings portraying the Masters of the Universe world, sculptures created by enlarging the action figures from the era by roughly fifteen times, and paintings depicting Madsaki at 10 years old with his awkward smile.
Opening reception: September 10 | 17:00~
※Please note that entry may be restricted if the number of visitors exceeds the maximum capacity
