I arrived at the Yokosuka Museum of Art, where a special exhibition of Mirocomachiko's works was being held. It is difficult to tell where one's first name ends and the other begins. But that is not all. Looking at the name alone, I cannot deny the possibility that Mirocomachiko is a combination of Miroco and Machiko, and I cannot rule out the possibility that this is a project that appears to be a single person but actually involves a large number of people. The more I think about it, the more I am confused.
It seems that I am not the only one who is unsure of the true identity of the picture book artist who specializes in drawings of animals and plants, and the theme of the exhibition being held was "Who is Mirocomachiko? Since the curator was asking such a question, it was no wonder that I, as an individual, could not understand it. With this in mind, I looked at the exhibits.
There were not only original pictures of picture books, but also videos, picture diary-like works, and wall newspaper-like works. The pictures are wonderful, but the texts are also interesting. I was not the only one who thought so, and many people were fascinated by the works with long sentences. The works in the glass cases were perfect for reading with one's chin resting on the case, but it was difficult to keep one's chin on the case for long periods of time without being warned by the watchman.
