Misaki Kawai, whom we have profiled in the magazine, has a great-appearing installation and exhibition, Big Bubbles, at Malmo Konsthall in Malmo, Sweden up through November 27. From the images we have seen, the exhibition almost looks like a children's fantasyland, with interactive installations and colorful characters.
