“Sakura” is a new work group, which is now shown for the very first time. This flower only blooms for a brief time and it symbolizes our limited existence. Japan has a deeply rooted tradition to celebrate the cherry blossom and its beauty diffuses through the entire atmosphere. Michel Comte aims to preserve the delicate beauty of momentary encounter.
“It is almost a natural evolution. (...) When the NFT started I think it was an extremely great democratization of art and I think art should be democratic, it should be for everybody. (...) The NFT will put some order into the system, it will regulate the market in an intelligent way.”
— Michel Comte
The exhibition also presents Michel Comte`s very first NFT works, which were dropped mid-May 2022. The so called "Japan Series" is a continuation to his cinematic film "The Girlfrom Nagasaki”, a melodramatic tale of love and despair, as a re-adaptation of Giacomo Puccini’s opera Madame Butterfly, which he directed and co-produced together with his wife Ayako Yoshida.
