This summer, the Kirishima Open-Air Museum will be hosting the specially planned Erina Matsui exhibit “Planet of the Face”. Erina Matsui is an artist known for her individual self-portraits with an unforgettably powerful impact. Matsui’s artwork can, for her, be called a kind of communication tool that allows her to share feelings and sensations with the viewer. They also serve a role similar to a GPS, allowing one to discover emotions and ideals inside oneself that had previously been unrealised. One might say that in her world, which expands all the way into space, it is possible to feel and perceive Matsui at the very moment she created that work. This exhibition, titled “Planet of the Face” encapsulates the concept of a cycle. In the world full of faces that Matsui creates waits her “self”, reborn time and time again. The viewer will experience space created as a singular soul is recycled. This exhibition will be the first of its kind in Kyushu, featuring new works created specifically for the exhibition, painting, sculpture, installation and other media. We invite you to come and enjoy the world Matsui creates.
