Released back in April, the Takashi Murakami-headed video for Billie Eilish‘s “you should see me in a crown” was a landmark crossover for both individuals, merging Eilish’s inimitable sound with the color-packed imagery of Studio PONCOTAN, the film and TV arm of Murakami’s Kaikai Kiki production and management company. Now, the Kaikai Kiki-owned Hidari Zingaro gallery is set to launch a behind-the-scenes exhibition about the music video, complete with a re-release of the duo’s collaborative merch.
“The Making of Billie Eilish’s ‘you should see me in a crown’ Official Video” will premiere inside Hidari Zingaro’s Animanga Zingaro nook, often dedicated to the gallery’s animation-related showings. Viewers can expect to see the original animation and concept drawings used to create the dynamic music video, alongside the enormous figure that held court at various “BILLIE EILISH EXPERIENCE” events in America. Furthermore, attendees will have the opportunity to pick up some of Eilish and Murakami’s long-sold-out collaborative merch, including graphic T-shirts, hoodies and a vinyl figure.
Check Hidari Zingaro’s website for information on the merch drop and event, which runs from July 10 until July 23.
Most recently, Murakami teamed with Perrotin for a graphic-heavy tote bag.
