C&P Interview

We are excited to announce the launch of our new video streaming series C&P Interview where we will be showcasing interviews with artists who have exhibited with us at CALM & PUNK GALLERY.

Our first installment features a long-form interview with New York based artist collective MSHR who exhibited their installation “Frame Wave” in the winter of 2019. It will be released on Youtube Premium on February 12, 2020 (Friday) at 9:00 p.m. JST with Japanese subtitles. The short versions of the interview will also be released on Instagram and Weibo.

In the twenty-minute interview, MSHR speaks on their former life as OPS; the relationship between nature and the mechanical (a theme frequently visited in their works); their exploration of light, surface, and space in installation; and what they see for themselves in the future.

The second installment will future artist Kosuke Kawamura, and the third, collective POLE & TOTEM. The ensuing episodes will feature other exhibitions and artists from 2020 onward.

Centering around the concepts of each exhibition, this series will be a chance to gain rare and valuable insight into artists’ processes.
