It’s been about a year since we visited the Fukushima-based art unit three during their stay in New York. But now the triplet is coming back with new work and a new solo exhibition at Miami’s NOW Contemporary Art gallery. On June 14th “three is a magic number 8” (all of their exhibitions begin with that same name) will open and remain up through July 27.

The show will feature work made in their signature style of deconstructed kawaii pop: cut-up, melted and deformed anime figurines fitted back into rectangular canvases and other shapes. The rectangular panel works are often based on the dimensions of a TV screen a symbolically important divide that separates the 2D and 3D worlds. When you think about it, it’s a fascinating cycle: a 2D character is turned into a 3D figurine, which is then once again reduced into fundamental, raw material.
