Looking for another location?
An artist shrouded in mystery, Rei Naito reminds us of the faint presence of things that are not visible unless we make the effort to see them. The elusive artist refuses to be filmed on camera, and after two years of correspondence, this documentary attempts to get close to the essence of Naito’s art, without pointing the camera at the artist herself.
The story involves the dynamism of the pulsating space of Matrix, an immersive artwork constructed in collaboration with SANAA architect Ryue Nishizawa at the Teshima Art Museum. Five women who are enticed by the world of Naito’s art also feature in the documentary, as they visit the installation. The result is the birth of a new art documentary reminiscent of a deep prayer, with many intangible and tangible things weaved into the story.
