Retrospective of disturbing and provocative art by Makoto Aida

After 20 years or so of making provocative disturbing art, Makoto Aida is currently having a retrospective exhibition of his huge body of work at Mori Art Museum — which, in them, coincidentally run up a high body count of mostly expressionless salarymen and school girls with Aida favoring dark themes like dismemberment, mutilation and cannibalism. He just has a way with making art pieces that are both massive and intricate.
