Ghosts and Hell: The Underworld in Asian Art



Ghosts and Hell: The Underworld in Asian Art
FRANCE
PARIS  •  musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac  •  Until 15 July 2018
 
 
The exhibition Ghosts and Hell: The Underworld in Asian Art presented at the musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac focuses its attention on ghost stories from East and Southeast Asia, delving into the world of spirits, terror and fantastic creatures and their contemporary adaptations. A journey to the edges of reality, where cinema, religious art, theatre, contemporary design, manga and video games intersect.

From Hokusai prints to Pac-Man, from Buddhist paintings to J-Horror – Japanese horror cinema from the 1990s-2000s – with the film ‘Ring’, from the Thai spirit cults to horror manga, the figure of the ghost has haunted the Asian imagination for centuries. In China, Thailand and Japan – the lands that the exhibition focuses on – the popular infatuation with terror is very real, and one that permeates a wide variety of cultural productions.
