Bad timing paints modern artist as bizarre cultist • Friday May 2, 2003

Mainichi Daily News (Japan), May 2, 2003

KOFU — An open-air display of modern art has drawn the unexpected attraction of local police because of its uncanny resemblance to the works of the controversial all-white cult, the Panawave Laboratory.

Kazuya Nakaue, who runs the gallery in Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi Prefecture, that organized the exhibit occupying a road in Gifu Prefecture and covering objects alongside with white cloths).”

The exhibition started on April 25 but since Panawave members’ antics were widely reported nationwide on April 29, concerned residents began to consult authorities.

Officials of the Fujiyoshida Municipal Government made an inquiry on April 30, followed by local police officers on Thursday. The gallery owner said the exhibition will continue until May 13 as scheduled because the artist fears that he would be wrongly connected to the cult if the show ends now.
