Catalogue Note

"Overseas, everyone started to read the work within the context of Murakami's Superflat theory. In a way, they can be explained with that, so that's fine, but for me they were much more personal. All the children and animals depicted came from inside me, not from a theory."

– Nara Yoshitomo
