"Fuyuko Matsui Exhibition - Becoming Friends with All the Children in the World"
This event has ended.
This is Fuyuko Matsui's first large-scale solo show at a public art museum. Her work was previously included in a group exhibition of nihonga painters at this museum in 2006.
Matsui was born in Morimachi, Shizuoka prefecture in 1974 and studied nihonga painting at the Tokyo University of the Arts. Her graduation work took the notion of psychological and physical pain as its starting point, and her subsequent works have centered on provocative themes such as terror, madness, narcissism, sex, birth and death.
On display will be a selection of her most representative works, drafts and rough sketches, including some 80 new pieces created expressly for this exhibition. There will also be screenings of videos and films that represent Matsui's first attempt at art direction.
