The inexplicably titled Ghosts, Underpants and Stars is a haunted house constructed in a gallery context which encourages young visitors to run about, touch the exhibits, and make as much noise as they like.
Torafu’s starting point was the idea of a painting’s gaze following visitors around a room.
Then they thought about heads becoming disembodied, mirrors warping perspective, paintings coming alive and visitors becoming the paintings.
Everything is controlled from a backstage room, which the children can access by stepping through frames and holes in the wall.
Here they turn prankster and unleash hell on the next wave of unsuspecting children, contributing to a perpetual cycle of mild horror and horseplay.
Ghosts Underpants and Stars runs until 8 September at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo.
