Mobile Garden House Exhibition at MUJI SOMA July 30th – August 28th with Silent Auction Hosted by J-POP SUMMIT Festival
San Francisco – August 7th, 2013 – MUJI U.S.A. LIMITED presents Mobile Garden House by Kyohei Sakaguchi, built at the D.I.Y. workshop during J-POP SUMMIT 2013, exhibited exclusively at MUJI SOMA (540 9th St.) in San Francisco from Tuesday, July 30th until Wednesday, August 28th. Mobile Garden House is part of Sakaguchi’s ongoing art project called Zero Yen House. The project is inspired by homeless people’s structures built on the streets of Tokyo, a degenerated urban society under advancing capitalism. The Mobile Garden House raises questions about architecture and self-sustainable lifestyle.
J-POP SUMMIT Festival is hosting a silent auction for the Mobile Garden House, to be auctioned off at the end of the exhibition. The proceeds will go to local organizations contributing to form a sustainable and greener environment in the Bay Area.
