Hiro Ando’s sculpture pays homage to the film ‘Ran’ by Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa which is often considered to be one of his finest achievements, and in which Jiro is the second son of the warlord Hidetora Ichimonji. The sculpture features a black helmet, or Kabuto, worn by Samurais living in feudal Japan. Ando is renowned for his youthful neo-pop aesthetic, in which he creates a contemporary dialogue between past and present through his use of unexpected colours and surface treatments, such as steel. Through his colourful sculpture, Ando recontextualizes the Samurai warrior, an iconic symbol of Japan, within the culture of the modern day.
