A little more than a month ago, I went to Shamijima and met with Yasuaki Igarashi (五十嵐靖晃) who showed me a preview of his work for the Setouchi Triennale 2013, that is Sora-Ami: Knitting the Sky (そらあみ). So of course, I returned as soon as possible after the triennale
I think everything is in the title. Also, it’s a nice reminder that there are more than art and tourists on Naoshima. And yes, this is Takamatsu and Shikoku in the background.
Zenigata in Kan’onji is a 100 meters wide, 400 years old sand coin. In other words, The island in the background is Ibukijima by the way.
I may surprised a few people, but the view from this beach could be my favorite thing on Naoshima!
With the current heat (35° for the past two days), I wish I could spend my days on a beach somewhere. Why not Naoshima‘s Benesse House Park & Beach, it’s not that far after all?
It’s too hot to write anything of substance today (35°C/95°F, remember, no A/C in Frrench homes) to instead a picture, that I hope you’ll find as “cooling” as I do: This picture was taken from Ōshima‘s beach. I hope you recognize Ogijima in the background.
