The exhibition is accompanied by a reprint of Yasunari Kawabata’s 1961 novella of the same name. Artists such as Francis Picabia, Joseph Cornell and Marcel Duchamp will be exhibited alongside artists of the sixties and seventies such as Renate Bertlmann, ULAY, Natalia LL to artists such as Keith Vaughan, Wally Hedrick, John Tweddle, and Kurt Seligmann who have remained on the edges of mainstream art history to contemporary artists such as Issy Wood, Lili Dujourie and Diane Kotila that are re-interpreting these themes today.

Diverse in both geographical and temporal terms, the works of the artists in the exhibition exist in a state of open-endedness, coaxing discreet visual connections at all times, bleeding from the corporeal reality to the unconscious dream-state.
