ChimPom makes work about post-Fukushima Japan and deliberately employs humour and subversion to address themes such as nuclear and natural disasters and how society might re-emerge afterwards.
In 2015, they opened their artist-run space "Garter" in Tokyo to curate and showcase work by many of their contemporaries. They also initiated, organized, and participated in the international exhibition “Don’t Follow the Wind,” which was launched on March 11, 2015, in Fukushima inside the nuclear exclusion zone created after the 2011 nuclear disaster.
