This spring, I streamed a series of cooking show of a sort on Instagram Live. I’m sure those who watched them were utterly confused, but I was trying to buoy my own thoroughly sunken feelings through these streamings. With the sudden swoop of COVID-19 pandemic, my company faced bankruptcy and I had to give up on a number of projects, the most symbolic of which being the production of my sci-fi feature film, Jellyfish Eyes Part 2: Mahashankh. For nine long years, I had persevered! It was a film that was to realize my childish dreams! The enormous budget I poured into this project, as well as my tenacious persistence, put a constant and tremendous stress on my company’s operation for the past nine years. But at the same time, I was able to endure various hardships because I had this project. Faced with the current predicament, however, I was persuaded by both my business consultant and tax attorney that I must, simply must try and drastically reduce our business tax by filing the film’s production cost as tax-exempt expenditure. To that end, I am going to produce and release a series of videos to publicly announce the discontinuation of the film’s production. (To be clear, this is an entirely legitimate procedure—I’m not trying to evade tax!) These videos will be released against the backdrop of our struggle to avoid an economic catastrophe, but perhaps it may have a cathartic effect on the viewers/my followers to see the story of stupid Murakami’s failure. Long story short, I’m a silly human being for whom the moment of bliss is when I am thinking my truly childish sci-fi thoughts. I don’t know how many episodes the series will end up being, but a series it will be, so please come along with me on this journey for a little while.

日本最著名的藝術家村上隆(Takashi Murakami)日前在instagram自揭,由於新冠肺炎的影響,多項合作計畫被迫停擱,所以工作團隊 Kaikai Kiki正面臨破產,讓藝術界和潮流界都大感意外。

每一幅作品都能賣出天價的村上隆受到潮流與時尚界的歡迎,甚至有為數不少的合作,看似工作一帆風順。沒想到他卻罕見的在個人instagram帳號自曝,因為疫情比想像中嚴重,而他近年又將大量資金投注在製作原創動畫的計畫中,原先的工作都被取消,所以工作團隊正面臨破產危機,而村上隆所提到的動畫製作,也確定因為資金短缺而結束了,讓不少人都驚訝。

特別是先前UNIQLO推出他與怪奇比莉(Billie Eilish)聯名系列T恤,無論在何地上市都造成搶購、秒殺,對比破產消息,真的讓人難以置信。
