Catalogue Note

"The little star dwellers give thanks to everyone
They thank all the stars blinking in the Milky Way

What haven't been fulfilled are dreams
What have been seem like dreams, but aren't
They're living right in that terrifying real world
Good dreams and bad dreams take shape: the real world
Days like dreams, looking back they're all scary scary shadow"

- Yoshitomo Nara (diary entry - June 5, 2000., exh.cat., Nuremberg, Institut für moderne Kunst, Yoshitomo Nara, Lullaby Supermarket, 2001, p. 180)
