Tate Modern – Pop Life Exhibition – Akihabara Majokko Princess Featuring Takashi Murakami | Kirsten Dunst | McG

By - October 8th, 2009


Pop Life: Art In A Material World called on some of contemporary art’s most prominent names such as Damien Hirst and Takashi Murakami to partake in this collective exhibition that explores art that had successfully infiltrated the market place and became part of the system. Other than the previously mentioned collaborative sculptural piece between Pharrell Williams and Takashi Murakami, another interesting piece from the artist is a video named Akihabara Majokko Princess, featuring Kirsten Dunst and created in conjuction with McG (director of Terminator Salvation and Charlie’s Angels). While the only place you will be able to see the video would be at Tate Modern in London, here are some shots of the video with Dunst as a magic princess prancing through Akihabara in Tokyo, singing Vapor’s Turning Japanese. Cosplayers surround Dunst and the entourage at times included plush toys such as the huge flower ball produced by Murakami’s Kaikai Kiki production house. via: Arrested Motion
