Chim Pom

1 September 2016

Tokyo, Japan

Formed in 2005, the six-strong Japanese artist collective Chim↑Pom have gained much recognition in the past decade. Following a solo show at MoMA PS1 in 2011, their international profile was further boosted last year with two exhibitions in London, at White Rainbow Gallery and the Saatchi Gallery. Using a range of media, in particular video, installation, and performance, Chim↑Pom’s art is loud, rebellious, and politically minded – and has protest at its heart. United in their commitment to creating works that say something about society, the group gained notoriety in 2012 when they produced a series in response to the Fukushima disaster.
