MAM Project 030 x MAM Digital: Yamauchi Shota

2022.12.1 [Thu] - 2023.3.26 [Sun]

Documentation Book

Yamauchi Shota’s newly commissioned work for this exhibition, The Planet of Faces, generated a total of 27,854 faces with viewers’ participation via the venue and the website, making it a very significant attempt to connect the real and virtual. As part of the generation that has grown up after 1995 when the internet became widespread, Yamauchi has been using myriad means to illuminate the relationship between self and world, and rifts between the world he perceives and its reality. The documentation book includes installation views, an essay introducing his past works written by the exhibition’s curator, another by Kuraya Mika, and an artist talk, as well as biography and bibliography. This long-awaited book is Yamauchi’s first publication to introduce his wide-ranging activities to date comprehensively.
