The exhibition explored these two aspects through award-winning works from past Japan Media Arts Festival exhibitions as well as more recent works. Pera Museum, celebrating its fifth year, has through its exceptional exhibitions since its founding, cherished and embraced young artists' works and the different mediums of art. With this exhibition, the Museum brought together creative works by Japanese artists that fuse technology and expression in the most extraordinary styles. The exhibition was complemented with artist presentations, panel discussions and film screenings.

1638, the year Louis XIV was born –his second name, Dieudonné, alluding to his God-given status– saw the diffusion of a cult of maternity encouraged by the very devout Anne of Austria, in thanks for the miracle by which she had given birth to an heir to the French throne. Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.
