This is " TOO MUCH Magazine issue 9 " (2022) from TOO MUCH Magazine , a Tokyo-based magazine that focuses on topics related to art, architecture, and cities .

The theme of issue 9 is "Sacred Space."

At the atelier of painter Yokoo Tadanori, which we visited with musician Hasunuma Shuta, we saw two reclining bodies in the same pose but with completely opposite meanings: the Reclining Buddha and Odalys. We also saw Japanese Muslims converting old houses and worn-out factories across the country into mosques, works by Korean artist Choi Jae-Eun and French artist Camille Henrot, and awe-inspiring stories told by women in Tohoku. When we talk about the sacred, we can also sense the profane things that are always reflected like a mirror.

From the editor's opening words, we can see that the theme of this issue was decided based on the Sarin gas attack on the Japanese subway. TOO MUCH issue 9 introduces the sacred and profane things that we tend to keep our distance from in Japan from the perspective of architecture and art (Ammel).
