pastel colors and symmetry take over tokyo in 'accidentally wes anderson' photo exhibition

‘Accidentally Wes Anderson’ DISPLAY comes to tokyo

 

‘Accidentally Wes Anderson’ takes viewers to secret places around the globe, unveiling a utopia of pastel tones, pleasing symmetry, and striking patterns. Running from April 5 to May 26, 2023, at Warehouse Terrada G1 Building, the AWA photography exhibition becomes the home of 300 odd landscape photographs informed by eye-catching scenes caught in Wes Anderson movies.

 

The American film director counts myriads of fans worldwide, admiring him for his whimsical visual aesthetic, bold color palettes, and eccentric style. Anderson’s wildly fictional locations are meticulously designed to match the style of each movie, and this nostalgic spirit is captured in the large photo series.

Through Anderson’s wacky lens

 

Last year, the AWA exhibition was held in Seoul, Korea, marking the first photography show inspired by the renowned film director. This year, the exhibition is heading to Tokyo, immersing onlookers in real life locations referencing Anderson’s much-loved visual world. The collection reflects magical sites found in Anderson’s much-discussed films, such as Furka Pass in Switzerland, London, Creepland, Ohio, and Willemstad on Curacao Island.

 

Each piece appears as a narrative, weaving together the worlds of AWA’s adventures with their pastel splashes, symmetrical compositions, and sometimes unorthodox placement. From the pink cylindrical storage tanks of Malley’s Chocolates to the Vickers Viscount turboprop airliner to the Hotel Belvédère nestled on the dramatic serpentines of Switzerland’s Alps, viewers will travel to the fantasy world of Anderson’s movies.
