Setouchi Triennale 2019 started in April. This contemporary art festival is held on islands in Kagawa and Okayama, as well as at the ports of Takamatsu and Uno in the Seto Inland Sea.
Setouchi Triennale 2019 officially started on April 26. This special art festival takes place on twelve islands and at two seaports located in the Seto Inland Sea in Kagawa prefecture and Okayama prefecture.
Today we introduce five works of art on display at Setouchi Triennale. We’ve selected them from among the new art pieces announced in April 2019.
You can see these art pieces until the end of the fall session (November 4), so, by all means, try to get out and have a look during this time period (*).
For a festival overview and access information to the various islands, please have a look at the Setouchi Triennale 2019 official homepage and MATCHA’s special article.
One special feature of Setouchi Triennale is that much of the artwork has taken root in the daily lives of the local islanders.
As such, it can be said that Megijima’s “Little Shops on the Island” project is a piece of work befitting Setouchi’s international art festival.
With this project, artists have opened up shops in abandoned buildings that were former lodging facilities.
These shops have been created by highly gifted and talented artists. Needless to say, these aren’t your typical, ordinary kinds of leisure facilities!
In the photo above is Ping-Pong Sea, a creation by Rintaro Hara and Yu Hara.
Modeled after a table tennis facility, this work of art features ping pong tables made with strips of wood that form a kind of xylophone.
