Keigo Oyamada, the Japanese musician who swiped his name from the Planet of the Apes character, has compiled a short video program for the public opening of Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) and the 5th Asia-Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT5). Cornelius and a three piece band launch the program with a free show on December 2.
At 37, Oyamada has been a staple of the Japanese music scene since emerging from Tokyo shibuya-kei pop duo Flipper’s Guitar in 1991. His mix of experiments and playful pop made an immediate impact, but it’s his design, fashion, video and art, and collaborations with artists and film makers, that led to his part in the GoMA launch.
