Big in Japan!!!

Showcasing the most avantgarde of the rising stars coming out of the land of the rising sun, Ksubi and Kirin's 'Big In Japan' returns to Sydney and debuts in Melbourne this November. Notwithstanding notoriety involving roosting birds and netting, last year's event saw Redfern's Carriage Works transformed by the who's who of the Japanese underground.

This year again promises a cornucopia of the crazy and kawaii. Expect to see the most conceptual and contemporary of Japanese art, stretching mediums including performance, video, fashion and installation. Acclaimed designer Yoshikazu Yamagata from writtenafterwards will display his futurist garb, while Yasushiro Suzuki is somehow packing floating sculptures into his Australia bound suitcase. The evening is also set to be an inspiring aural experience, with Japanese krautrock girl group Nisennenmondai taking the stage alongside Mamoru Okuno, whose 'audio and culinary performance taps into the music of noodles'. Sounds delicious.

Big In Japan Sydney takes place Tuesday November 16th at The Royal Hall of Industries, Moore Park while Big In Japan Melbourne takes place on Friday November 19th at Thousand Pound Bend. For more information on the artists and the 'Big in Japan' concept, visit the event's blog.
