Gallery Emmanuel Perrotin opened a new exhibition of work by Japanese artist Mr. this week. The group of work, entitled “Nobody Dies,” includes both photographs and paintings. Central to the body presented is the idea of irony in candor. This plays out in a series focused on manga styled young women, Lolitas. No matter their activity, these characters display a sense of wonder and wide eyed innosence. On view until January 10, 2009.
Gallery Emmanuel Perrotin, 10 Impasse Saint Claude 75003 Paris.
