At a time when blank spots have by and large disappeared from maps, “wilderness” has returned in art. The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt has dedicated an extensive theme-based exhibition to this recurring fascination.


Shiro Matsui

Jonah´s Green
Shiro Matsui, born in 1960 in Nara, Japan, is one of a new generation of artists who have a site-specific approach, working within an intercultural, historical, scientific and architectural framework.
This book presents the aesthetic experiences of Matsui in Krefeld; here the artist combined the flowing concept of architecture of Mies van der Rohe with natural laws of science. Her work reveals a perceptive strategy shaped by Asia that is both sensual and corporal.
