2016 Setouchi Triennale International Art Festival
Here are some photos I took from this year’s art festival on the Inland Sea islands of Naoshima, Teshima, Ogijima, Megijima and the port towns of Takamatsu (Shikoku) and Uno (Okayama).
Sou Fujimoto–“Naoshima Pavillion”
Yayoi Kusama–“Red Pumpkin,” the first thing you see as you arrive in Miyanoura Port. Inside the Red Pumpkin:
Yoyoi Kusama–“Pumpkin” (near Benesse House and hotel)
Shinro Ohtake–“I Love Yu” public bath (‘Yu” means “hot water” in Japanese)
The outside of “I Love Yu” public bath
See our previous article on Naoshima
Ryue Nishizawa and Rei Naito–Teshima Art Museum
The museum itself is actually underground. This is the entrance.
Pipilotti Rist–“Your First Color”
Christian Boltanski–“Les Archives Du Coeur.” A place to listen to heartbeats.
Takahito Kimura–“Sea Gulls Parking…”
See our previous article on Megijima and the story of Momotaro the Peach Boy.
Jaume Plensa–“Ogijima’s Soul”
This is where they make the “onba carts” that the people push around the island to transport goods since there are few cars.
This cart is made in the shape of the local car ferry!
Takeshi Kawashima–“Kaleidoscope Black and White”
Keisuke Yamaguchi–“Walking Ark”
Mayumi Kuri–“Memory Bottle”
Haruki Takahashi–“Sea Vine”
Mechanical instruments that make natural noises.
See our previous article on Ogijima.
Shinji Ohmaki –“Liminal Air -core-”
Lin Shuen Long–“Beyond the Border…”
Atsushi Ozawa–“Beyond the Last Stop”
Esther Stocker–“JR Uno Minato Line Art Project”
