Chiho Aoshima: City Glow

Saturday, Jan 15 - Sunday, Jul 17, 2011

<em>City Glow</em> was made by Japanese artist Chiho Aoshima in collaboration with New Zealand-based animator Bruce Ferguson. Using a pictorial style derived from traditional and pop sources (Japanese scroll paintings, manga, and anime), City Glow contains a cyclical narrative, which begins with the dawn of a paradisaical garden. Living skyscrapers sprout during the day, only to be overgrown at night by a landscape filled with ghosts and fairies. Chiho Aoshima, born in 1974 in Tokyo, is a member of Takashi Murakami’s Kaikai Kiki Collective.
