Hajime Sorayama and the artist’s gallery, NANZUKA, are teaming up with humanitarian organization, Doctors Without Borders, to release a new print edition. Fifty percent of proceeds from the sale of the prints will go to medical personnel to combat the COVID-19 pandemic across the globe.

The print is inspired by an original work by Sorayama titled Sex Matter (A) — it was part of an eponymous exhibition that recently took place at NANZUKA Gallery and its other Tokyo outpost, 2G Studio. The composition of the piece features an erotic portrayal of a male and female robot. With these futuristic subjects, the artist challenges social taboos and subverts the traditional ideas of robots.

Those looking to purchase a print will need to follow the instructions below:

1, We will accept the application ‪from 18th April to 20th April 2020‬.
