Cabinet des Curieux Gallery presents the work of eight young female Japanese artists whose work depicts with sensuality and humor the recent social mutations of the archipelago. In the country of the Rising Sun, today men are imprisoned in the social model of the ‘salarymen’. Whilst on the contrary, Lolitas are using this time to remake themselves, and have recently begun to write an exciting new chapter of Japanese womens history.

As a new driving force of the economy, these women now work for the modernization of traditional Japanese culture, a culture that was unknown to the Western World. This new feminine expression is based on ‘impermanence’ (a Buddhist concept) and is mixed with the attraction to darkness and the internalization of feelings.

By embracing modernization, these young artists claim their individuality and generalize the notion of Ego, a notion which is banned by Buddhism and Shintoïsm, the principal religions in Japan. These artists express their desires and fears in their work by mixing dreams and obscurity. They give us a wonderful vision of their fantasized lives, full of coloured pop and poison.
