TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Notorious Japanese funny man and performance artist, Cookie (酷奇), debuted “Super Cookie Land in Taipei,” a version of the most talked about exhibition of 2017 in Japan, at the Huashan Laugh and Peace Factory on Sunday.

Cookie himself appeared Sunday to welcome guests to "Super Cookie Land". The exhibit features over 200 unique art pieces and is a journey into the bizarre psyche of Cookie, into his colorful worldview.

Cookie said that he tailor-made the exhibit for Taipei however, in a way that Japanese audiences would not be able to handle, according to CNA. The style and subjects of the Taipei version are “darker and weirder” than the Japanese counterpart.
