About

To mark the opening of Sleep, Lick, Leak, Deep…. by Maya Erin Masuda at the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, we are delighted to host an online artist talk, Maya Erin Masuda in conversation with Johnny Golding.

Born in Tokyo and based in London and Berlin, Masuda has often likened skin, the highly personal, physical and emotional boundary which living beings possess, to the national, necropolitical borders artificially constructed by human societies. For Masuda, her research trips to ecologically damaged sites are a liberating experience, deconstructing the discrepancy between an institutionalised human-planetary exploitation and her own sensations, brought about by finding the unbearable ecological intimacy embedded within.

In this talk, Maya Erin Masuda and Professor Johnny Golding will discuss Masuda’s artistic motivation and her recent projects, in which Masuda takes an intimate look at contemporary ecological traumas and biopolitics seen in particular chemical infrastructures or nuclear catastrophes.
