When we brought you a first look (here) at the A-list “Pop Life” exhibition at the Tate Modern yesterday, we neglected to mention that the short film “Akihabara Majokko Princess” from Murakami was included. Created in collaboration with one of Hollywood’s hottest directors, McG (Charlies Angels & Terminator Salvation), the video is yet another extension of Takashi’s renowned short film artform which previously featured Louis Vuitton, Inochi, & Kanye West.
Starring Kirsten Dunst singing a cover to the Vapors’ “Turning Japanese”, the video includes footage of Dunst dancing through the streets of the Akihabara district in Tokyo dressed as a colorful princess. If you look carefully at the front image of our “Pop Life” article, you can see Murakami next to a painting paying tribute to this experience entitled “Kirsten Dunst & McG & Me”.
Check pics of Kirsten frolicking thru the streets of Akihabara as well as previous Murakami videos after the jump…
