Mr has an uncanny and compromising way of depicting Lolita figures, paving a way to create some really epic imagery separating irony from candor. The Japanese artist is set to embark on an extensive exhibition, entitled “Nobody Dies” opening on October 21 in Paris at Gallerie Emmanuel Perrotin. The hope of seeing his ambiguous representation of pubescent amazement will be enough in itself as he has combined the feigned innocence of Nabokov’s heroine with another era and another cultural register.
