Artist collectivehas Chim↑Pom has continuously released works that fully intervene in contemporary society with strong social messages. Their exhibition “PAVILION” is held at Taro Okamoto Memorial Museum.

It has been two years since the execution of the guerrilla act “Level 7 feat. ‘Myth of Tomorrow'” in 2011. The picture depicting the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant explosion was being put underneath the permanent exhibited mural by Taro Okamoto, “Myth of Tomorrow” in Shibuya station.

The show “PAVILION” had obtained it’s form as an official collaboration with the museum, which is Taro’s ex-studio/residence. All pieces except “Level 7 feat. ‘Myth of Tomorrow'” are newly made. And especially, the miraculous piece crowned the title of the exhibition, “PAVILION,” is a must see collaborative work with the museum which is using Taro Okamoto’s remaining bone.
