Kintsugi Supermarket is Australia’s first born and bred Australian Japanese fusion repurposed art, discount department store. The first store opened on the outskirts of Melbourne, in Newport at The SUBSTATION in Victoria in early 2020, for one night only.
Kintsugi Supermarket employed interactive audience engagement to build unique products, using recycled art and materials provided from a wide variety of Australian and Japanese artists.
