Art is produced from waste materials dumped by developed countries. Exhibition of works by artist Mago Nagasaka aiming for a sustainable society


At the Barneys New York Ginza Main Store, we will exhibit and sell art works by Mago Nagasaka, an artist who continues to make art from waste materials of electronic devices dumped by developed countries including Japan.

Sublimate the waste materials accumulated in Agbog Brosie, a slum in Ghana, which is said to be the world's largest graveyard for electronic devices, into his own work, and use the power of art to disseminate the truth of capitalism to the world.
The activity of advocating "sustainable capitalism" and returning the sales of the work to the education, culture, economy and environmental improvement of the people of the slums of Ghana is highly evaluated all over the world.

As an exhibition, we will mainly introduce works using electronic waste and clothing waste, which will be unveiled at the Ginza main store for the first time, and new works inspired by Barneys New York.

In addition, you can see various works that he is working on with a wish for world peace.
