1st Kirishima lobby project Joyce Ho in Kirishima Open-air Museum.

Kirishima open-air museum newly begins ‘Kirishima lobby project’ that invites asian artist this year. The artist resides in Kagoshima and creates new works, inspired by the area. They will be installed in the exhibition lobby in the museum. Memorable first project invites Joyce Ho from Taiwan.


Ho is young woman artist born in Taipei. Ho manages not only art but also theater, so her representation crosses genres such as painting, sculpture, and performance. Her recent works have surprising elements even if they treat the ordinary. Her unique perspective and senses stir viewer’s mind.


Ho will go around Kagoshima prefecture for searching subject of works. Perhaps, She comes to your town. What kind of works will be created in Kagoshima?

Open studio takes place at the exhibition lobby next to entrance before exhibition. So you can witness creation of artwork. Please look forward!
