Alex Trochut – Think Twice Exhibition at Collette Paris, May 5th to June 7th of 2014.

Alex Trochut is currently exhibiting his latest binary prints exhibition: ‘Think Twice’ at Collette in Paris. Alex invented (and patented) a process through which two completely separate images could be shown on one surface–one which appears in light, and one which appears only in the dark. This glow in the dark wall installation explores dual transformations of multiple subjects, depending on how we perceive them, either from day light or in the dark.

Alison Jay in Tokyo

This month we are extremely excited to announce a brand new exhibition opening in Tokyo, featuring the wonderful work of Alison Jay. The world famous Japanese artist, animator and director, Hayao Miyazaki, responsible for acclaimed animated films such as 'Spirited Away', invited her to contribute her stunning work to the Ghibli Museum's new exhibit based on the story of The Nutcracker. He has admired her work for a long time, and upon seeing her version on The Nutcracker,  published by Templar, he simply had to collaborate with her - what an honour! Her work will be showcased in its own room in the exhibition, dedicated to introducing children to the classic tale. Curated by Miyazaki himself, and in collaboration with the Tokuma Memorial Cultural Foundation for Animation, this is a must see exhibit and runs from 31st  May 2014 to May 2015. More information regarding the exhibit can be found here:http://www.ghibli-museum.jp/en/
