Itoshima International Art Festival 2014: Itoshima Arts Farm
October 14, 2014 / DIARY
I went to Itoshima to make a review about FUKUOKA ART DATE, a project open until the end of November. The “Itoshima International Art Festival 2014: Itoshima Arts Farm” is currently open to the public only in the weekends of October 11th, 12th and 13th, and 18th, 19th.
Using the small shrine in the mountain Matsue Gonkuro Inari as a stage, several art works are on display. I was particularly impressed by the installation “to C”, by Zihan Karim (Bangladesh) and Kenji Makizono. The installation, created with discarded objects, is made through a way of layering that completely differs from graphic or web design. It’s a temporary installation, but it’s a space where it seems possible to feel something like a divine presence. Also in terms of plastic arts, I think it has a beautiful balance.
It’s only for five days, but the 13th it was closed due to the typhoon, so only two days remain, 18th (Sat) and 19th (Sun). The exhibition can be reached also by train. CENTRAL_ members and readers will definitely enjoy this event, don’t miss it!
There is also an horse cart (?!) that brings your luggage from the station to the exhibition place.
