Mitsuhiro Okamoto “Batta Mon” Sculptures

On view through November 27, 2010 at Osaka’s CAS, Mitsuhiro Okamoto’s “Batta Mon” sculptures raise questions about the relationship between authenticity and imitation. The locust shaped works are produced from fake designer bags – with logos prominent – and the name plays off of the slang term for knock off.

Okamoto’s work was previously displayed at the Kobe Fashion Museum, but removed after Louis Vuitton protested pieces containing their brand logo.
