Finally, just the two exhibitions this weekend, I went to the Tobacco and Salt Museum in Shibuya, for a quirky exhibition, ‘My Punctuation Marks‘. 170 contemporary Japanese illustrators who interpreted liquor, tobacco, coffee and tea for specially created works as ‘their everyday punctuation marks, meaning that they give you rhythm just like punctuation marks do in your sentences’; as I said, quirky. There were actually some really interesting visuals on display and of course the not so good illustrations that you seem to always get at these type of things. One illustration was of Tiger Woods with a cigarette in his mouth and a variety of collage images stood out for me. A nicely set up exhibition, with all works hugging the walls to a create a spiraling walkway of rich visuals.
