Once Upon a Who?

Esther Schipper is pleased to announce Once Upon a Who?, Simon Fujiwara's second solo exhibition with the gallery. Once Upon a Who? presents new works from Fujiwara's latest ongoing project – a body of work centered on the fictional character Who the Bær.

Who the Bær is a unique cartoon character in the form of a denim wearing bear with a golden heart and an uncontrollably long tongue, that seemingly has no gender, race, sexuality or even a clear design. Without an identity, Who exists only as an image, a status that allows them the freedom to roam a world of online images, appropriating characters, identities, aesthetics and guises in a greedy search for a ‘self’.
