The port of the village where the family plan is located is a concentrated residential area on Naoshima Island. Miyaura Port is a port for large ships to enter and exit, and this village is the place where small fishing boats on the island stop, and it is more life-like. The village is all Japanese-style small houses, maze-like alleys, no need to look at the map, anyway, just walk around at will, I don't know which corner will be an artist's work. In the gap between the walls, I saw a pool of blue waves in the park. It was a hot day. I really wanted to go in and cool off, but I couldn’t find the entrance when I walked and walked. The works of the artists are so confusing. .
Naoshima is aging seriously. If Tadao Ando hadn't taken a fancy to this island, the Chichu Art Museum was built here, and a large number of artists put art works on this island, which activated Naoshima, and it is estimated that Naoshima will gradually be lost. vitality. But even so, in the most populous area of the village, I saw all tourists, not a single local. There are many planned works in this village, but they are scattered and hidden and not easy to find. In short, it is better to have a happy encounter in a shuttle alley. Don't set too specific goals, just look at them at will.
Take a dot bus for 100 yen from Miyaura Port on Naoshima’s cruise ship terminal. Get off at the front of the Agricultural Cooperative and you will arrive at the village. This is the main art area in the family plan. There are still many people living in this village, and these old houses have been transformed in the art plan to show the combination of old buildings and modern art. There are 7 works in total, all of which are within walking distance, but they are a bit like a small maze. Anyway, just walk around the alleys without a purpose, and there is no need to deliberately search.
Welcome to dodo's Japanese series NO.41. Hiroshi Sugimoto's "Seascape" series is collected in the Benesse House of Tadao Ando, Naoshima. Hiroshi Sugimoto once photographed Tadao Ando's "Church of Light". The relationship between the two masters can be said to have a long history. Versatile. Many times seamlessly switch in different fields. Photographer, collector, Noh playwright, and critic Hiroshi Sugimoto is one of them. No matter what identity he uses in any period, he always insists on using light, water, and air to convey the same. Viewpoint. In fact, photography is a very influential art field compared to painting from a very early time. Even the world-renowned photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto himself expressed similar regrets. The continuous innovation of digital technology and the continuous elimination of traditional photography made him gradually want to create More practical things changed from photography to architecture. The new idea that emerged after chatting with Ando, "Goo Shrine" was the initial work. Hiroshi Sugimoto’s attempt at Naoshima was very successful. We all know that in Japan, shrines have always been The transformed Goo Shrine, used for pointing and enlightening, gives visitors a more intuitive immersive experience. In addition to the first scene, the shrine on the ground-Tenjin, and the second scene, the underground stone room-Huangquan And the third scene-the passage to heaven, the whole senses of the visit are progressed layer by layer. Tenjin and Huangquan are connected with a transparent ladder. The transparent ladder is Hiroshi Sugimoto's choice of a very expensive optical glass for making camera lenses. The will of God was conveyed to the underground stone chamber in the form of light through glass. Suddenly there was a holy light from the sky underground. The most profound thing is the third stage. I don’t know if the babies have seen Ito Junji's horror comic "Ami Shell" "Ghost of Fault" walks in the narrow and dark passage only for one person to pass through, there is an inexplicably suppressed fear and breathlessness. There is only the scene of the first chapter of the comic in my mind. When I reach the end, I have no entity. There is a human-shaped black hole. But, it’s actually not that scary. Everything is my own imagination. The staff will give me a flashlight and visit with me. There is also a pair of Japanese girls who opened the way for me from the dark to the light. The Seto Inland Sea is like coming from a yellow spring to heaven. This experience is suddenly enlightened. I ranked second in the home plan. Maybe because of the photographer's background? Only Goo Shrine in the master plan of the whole family can be photographed:).

Welcome to the Japanese series of dodo. There is a "Home Project" in Naoshima. The full name is Minamidera家プロジェクト (Art House Project). The same is the Benesse Group's funding plan to use local abandoned houses and granaries to invite artists to create art. Attracting literary and artistic youths from various countries to Naoshima to save the aging of the island and turn fatigue into freshness and vitality. The art revival economy can be called a modern renaissance. Since the launch of the Home Project, many artists have joined the ranks one after another. The most invested projects are undoubtedly the three famous local art museums in Tadao Ando, Lee Ufan Art Museum, and Benesse House. They all came from Naoshima and can be called Ando Island. The "South Temple" in the "Home Project" It is also Tadao Ando’s work that has become the leader of the "Home Project" without exception. In the "Home Project" series, I personally think it is the best experience. My favorite is not allowed to refute. Nanji was originally the site of temples and shrines on Naoshima. It’s no better to use light to explain this historical place based on local beliefs and spiritual emotions. The work is called "Backside of the Moon" (1999), a work jointly created by Tadao Ando and James Turrell (Master of Light). .In all the works of James Turrell, you can easily find that he is good at using light, space and senses to stimulate the infinite potential of mankind. Therefore, in addition to the three giants that must be seen before going to Naoshima, this is the one I am most looking forward to.
Limited number of people in Nanji I was afraid that I would not be in time for the visit. After I came out of the Dizhong Art Museum, I hurried to Nansi to make an appointment. Finally, I was scheduled to be able to enter at around 4 in the afternoon. I found that there was a long queue at the door. Our batch is also the last batch of today. People lined up and the phones were turned off and they started to walk into the Nansi Temple. Touch and touch the wall with their hands and follow the staff's guidance into the darkness. The interior is actually a ㄇ-shaped space, but the eyes just from the bright place to the dark are completely Darkness and fear occupies a large part, but under the voice prompts of the staff, everyone sat on the deepest bench like blind people. The next thing is to sit still for 5 minutes and wait for the eyeballs to adjust to the darkness. Light. The brightest light comes from the darkness, just like the darkest depths in the heart. Once calm, the whole life will usher in the light. Words description is not enough to reflect the magic of the time. An incredible and wonderful experience, don't you want to experience it? .The "Home Project" rejuvenated the low-rise houses on Naoshima from Edo to Meiji period. Riding in the alleys of ordinary people, looking for the footsteps of tradition and modernity. When the perfect combination of art and life, I am grateful after I set foot on the island. After all these encounters, the idea of transforming old houses with art is really great! The same work went to other regions and the shock at that time was completely gone. I remember that there was a year when James Turrell came to the magic city in Shanghai. The whole venue was noisy and noisy. On-site security was in vain. The entire exhibition was destroyed and the artistic conception was completely destroyed. Fortunately, I had experienced it in Naoshima, otherwise I would not really get the intention of the master.
