Essay included in the exhibition catalogue, Yoshitomo Nara: the Beginning Place

In this catalogue-cum-companion-volume to a solo show at the Aomori Museum of Art, works and exhibition views organized around five themes—“house/home,” “space-time in layers,” “travel,” “no war,” and “Rock Café ‘33 1/3’ and a small community”—elucidate the essential “core” leading back to the very origins of Yoshitomo Nara’s sensibilities. The book also features a detailed chronology as well as essays by Aomori Museum of Art curator Shigemi Takahashi, philosophy scholar Masato Goda, and music critic Josh Kun.
