This is such a great time to be in the Seto Inland Sea area, especially during the Setouchi Triennale. You get to see such a great variety of artists and get in touch with their creations. One such place that you might want to check out is, Goro Murayama’s “generative wall drawing on japanese paper house” in Ogijima.

Ogijima is one of my favourite places in Kagawa, and I highly recommend you check it out. There are several blogs on this site for you to reference to get a fuller idea of all the cool things this island has to offer.

A few interesting things about Goro Murayama first. He is an internationally recognized artist, and has studied and lived in both Vienna and London. Living in Tokyo he is also the recipient of a great number of awards and is rather prolific.

It’s a great chance to check out his exhibit on Ogijima and admission is very very reasonable. Only 300 yen. I greatly enjoyed his comments in this video about infusing a sense of growth within the 90 year old house he works with, and that there is a kind of organic continuation of the art with the house as they both grow in time. A beautiful concept and one worth visiting. Enjoy!
