Artist Shika (Shieko Reto) has created a safe haven for her artwork after controversially comparing artists throwing away their art to babies being dumped. Everyone is welcome to the exhibition, and are encouraged to express themselves in her sanctuary. Come and get your portrait drawn in the opposite gender (or with no gender at all) by the star herself or watch the Japanese movies that will be playing in the background. Interesting workshops are also offered such as drawing within half a minute, making zines and composing music. Although a significant portion of Shika’s output over the years have been dealing with heavy subjects; her approach has been known to be warm and childlike in aesthetic.
Date 12 – 20 March ’16
