While the work of Japanese artist Mr. and his obsession with otaku subculture — characterized by a fixation with manga, anime, video games and sci-fi literature — may not bring to mind the seriousness associated with the Japanese natural and nuclear disasters of 2011, the former protege of Takashi Murakami has created one of the more thoughtful installations on the subject. His “Metamorphosis: Give Me Your Wings” exhibition is largely composed of garbage and objects from everyday Japanese life, formed into an enormous, complex display that deals with the devastation caused by the events of last year. Juxtaposed with the installation is a series of the artist’s paintings — a range of colorful, uplifting pieces that provide a suitable counterpoint to the exhibition’s heavier subject matter — Mr.’s “Metamorphosis: Give Me Your Wings” exhibition is currently running at Lehmann Maupin Gallery in New York at the 540 West 26 St. location.
