Mitsuhiro Okamoto "Batta Mon" Sculptures

Batta Mon exhibit, Osaka, Japan
Mitsuhiro Okamoto "Batta Mon" Sculptures are sculptures made out of knock off designer handbags. Its made to call into question the relationship between imitation and authenticity. A much better use of the materials IMHO. Its always cool to see an artist take one item and creatively utilize it in a completely different way, I think its the same reason why I love to hear a sample used several ways. If you're anywhere near the Kyoto gallery in Osaka, Japan you should make it a point to see these in person. For the rest of us here in the western hemisphere... there's more pics after the jump.
