BRING™, operated by JEPLAN, INC. (Representative Director, President, and Chief Executive Officer: Masaki Takao; hereinafter “JEPLAN”), sponsored artist yang02's solo exhibition ‘Unknown Technics’ (hereinafter “this exhibition”) (Venue: agnès b. Gallery Boutique, duration: during the exhibition - 16 Jun (Sun)) and provided clothing collected by BRING™ (used clothing) as material for the works on display.

Focusing on (post)capitalism, energy issues, degrowth, and the political and social impact of advanced technology, artist yang02's works have presented a new approach that considers the future, which is often thought of from a progressivist perspective, from a broader and more diverse perspective. This exhibition, the last in Japan before yang02's departure for the U.S., updates and consolidates the body of work presented since the Corona Disaster into a single theme, and the venue is comprised of six groups of works, including "Modern Spectator" and "A Device for "Graffiti" ".

BRING, a brand that implements the Circular Economy, is engaged in collecting unwanted clothes, converting them into recycled raw materials at its own factories using proprietary technologies, and manufacturing and selling apparel products made from the recycled materials. Through this resource recycling initiative, we are contributing to the reduction of environmental burdens. yang02, who is involved in creative activities that focus on social issues, sympathized with BRING's activities and used used clothing collected by BRING™ as supports for one of the works in the exhibition. This work strongly reflects yang02's background as a graffiti artist.

The JEPLAN Group will continue to work together with domestic and international partners to realize its mission of BRINGing everyone into circular economy, and the entire group will work together to drive the circular economy.
