MONSTER Exhibition is the 6th edition since its first exhibition in 2013. This open call exhibition is known for the showcase of “KAIJU (MONSTER)” arts. Artists have been selected to show their art work at 8/COURT (Shibuya, Tokyo). The “KAIJU(MONSTER)” theme will incorporate the metaphor of The Great East Japan Earthquake and subsequent tsunami. Some artists expressed their feelings through this disaster. However, the artists are free to interpret the metaphor. We can see not only the expression of disaster but also expressions of humanity, politics and self-expression. It mirrors what happened through the filter of “KAIJU(MONSTER)”. We opened MONSTER exhibition to different mediums such as paintings, sculptures, architecture, design, movies and graphic.

Personalized wearable fashion

Your artwork is a one-of-a-kind piece. Just like you – every human being is unique. Your style is more than what you’re wearing – it’s your unmistakable story.

This garment that shows your face, as well. The motifs are a part of yourself, a mirror of your memories, convictions, rituals, feelings, transitions, detours. They stand for that, what was, is or will be important to you. An essential yearning, an unlived dream, a crazy wish, a brave vision or whatever. A certain something important to you. Something that reminds you of what is important to you in your life. 
YOU  and your personality. 
Like a body tattoo, your second skin. 

Because, you & your authentic personality is your brand. It’s your sales recipe for success. You are the ambassador of your concepts. Your personality must be lived, experienced, implemented, staged, embodied. Living your identity makes you strong and attractive. And self-staging is so fantastic!

The fabrics of these customized & personalized garments are tailor-made in digital print by our creative agency. They put your art into the spotlight. On request, we can design a unique garment (for instance a bomber jacket) with your art also for your customers / fans / friends. They can simply choose their favorite motif, which expresses their personality and so they become the carriers of your message. The only one thing what we need is a high-resolution picture of your chosen motif. There are no borders here – everything is possible!

Some inspirational questions for your application:

„Chance comes from emptiness. To the artist it brings fullness.“ Dieter Mahlow

What does Serendipity mean to you?

What role does chance play in your art?

What stories does it tell in your work?

How does chance affect you in the creative process?

Do you use chance as an aesthetic creative principle? How? For example, through experimentation with forms, structures, materials, techniques, as well as contextual relationships …?

Do you have a strategy to use chance?

Your method of random generation?

How does chance help you to break new ground artistically?

Is chance in art/design/creativity necessary?

Am I in control of the aesthetic results of chance on my work?

What insights/awareness about your art has given you chance?

Is there such a thing as objective chance in art, or is chance for you a subjective sensation?

What is the relationship between rules, chance and chaos in your art?

How much calculation, intellect, order can chance endure in art?

How do you steer chance artistically?

When is the creative moment triggered by chance?

Does every random, systematic experiment in the creative process lead to a new artistic territory?

When are supposed accidents in art really art?

Is there something like good and bad luck in art?

Which aspects of your art elude your actions, desires, wishes?

Does chance give you meaningful freedom?

Is natural or directed / provoked chance a stroke of luck for you as an artist?

Does the recognition of chance in your art make the magic of art smaller?

If art is made according to the playful random principle, is it art at all from your point of view?

How much power should one give to chance? Can chance be completely mastered?

Do you use chance to succeed in the art scene?

Can real freedom in art not only be achieved through complete lack of will and intention?

Does chance unfold when you get involved in the creative process?

Do you know the feeling of (mis)using chance (subconsciously) in order to disguise my own technical shortcomings as an artist?

Does (supposed) chance not give sense to your artistic creations?

From your point of view, is it possible to experience / allow chance only through total abandon to the (sub)consciousness?

How do you feel in those moments when you realize what chance was good for?

Can art redefine chance over and over again?

Which conventions / prejudices / concepts about your reality have you blown overboard thanks to chance?

Never lose the child in you!

Never lose the child in you!

Never lose the child in you!

In these photo series we search for sacral, protected periods of childhood. It’s about the yearning for the great childhood dream that changes our lives at a later date.

Do you sometimes ask yourself what was important to you in your childhood? What has overwhelmed your heart at the time?

It may sound a bit pathetic, but it is true – true dreams eventually settle, because you can not flee forever from yourself. You can study for years, do a PhD, get further education, do successful, well-paid jobs that you enjoy. And yet at some point you hear that deep, soft, gentle voice inside of you: “Is that really you? You are more capable than what you are doing. Why do not you just trust it? “But when it comes to your unadulterated essence – then you’re just it, you have no choice, no matter what it was before. You do not have to prove it to anyone. Even the question „why that exactly“ is totally irrelevant.

In a nutshell: Once upon a time there was a shy, sensitive girl named Paulina. She painted for hours, days, night after night, on the kitchen table – colorful, geometric patterns, fantastic creations spilling out of her imagination. She was not alone – even her twin sister did the same and sat next door, also painting. Paulina wanted to differ as more as possible – shriller, fancier, crazier. The patterns merged into human bodies, the threshold between reality and fiction fused. From time to time the dad appeared, scolding the two girls because his handmade table suffered from their creativity. It was his unlived dream to be an artist himself, that made him pass out, angry. Paulina went on stubbornly anyway. The sister guessed after her, and took her as a example for the “courage to be yourself, trust and dare the impossible”.

Years of challenges of all kinds passed by – illnesses, flight, relocations, upheavals. Years of searching for existential security. Paulina often asked herself the question, especially if she was successful in something – “Is it worth the price? What if you really die soon, and you do not have time to live what you really are. But what are you really? No, you are not your twin sister.” The first step was to emancipate from her, the second was the abandonment of all grueling conditions, then came the risk of becoming entrepreneur. The fashion was always been somehow your thing. But also not really actually, at least not only. The detour through the historic vintage fashion…

And then the heart’s desire exploded – let your childhood rise again, by designing fabrics with your old patterns from over 20 years ago and creating your own haute couture cuts. Your hitherto deeply buried, repressed life dream. Although you have no time, no money, not the right education for it. Or perhaps exactly for that reason. Because, simply it’s you.

But still, the question arises: does a childhood dream, as valuable as it may have been, should your right self-determination? Aren’t exactly the unfulfilled dreams, the unresolved longings, what creates an insatiable zest for life? What is worth living for? We do not have to fulfill all dreams in this life … Because the very idea of putting everything into this life creates an unbelievable pressure! Sometimes it is enough to remember what we once were.
