CultureSecrets invites you to a private visit to the Miyu Gallery which presents the work of one of its international artists, the Japanese Sawako Kabuki. For her first solo exhibition in Europe, this young animated film director presents some twenty previously unpublished prints and animation loops from her unabashed pop universe. Four of her short films: Anal Juke, Master Blaster, Summer's Puke is Winter's Delight and Takoyaki Story are shown in the gallery's projection space.
