Inujima (犬島, literally: “dog island”) is a small secret island off Okayama in the Seto Inland Sea that is named after a large rock resembling a sitting dog. Like nearby Naoshima Island, Inujima has become known as a site for modern art in recent years and serves as a venue of the Setouchi Triennale modern art festival.
Opened in summer 2013, Miyanoura Gallery 6 is located in the Miyanoura District on Naoshima Island. Architect Taira Nishizawa has transformed “Pachinko 999 (Three Nine),” a former amusement arcade enjoyed by residents of the island, along with an adjoining park, into a new space where visitors and local people can get together and relax.
More than imagined, despite my high expectations, Japan’s Setouchi Triennale has been a once in a life experience that I shall highlight in my memories. The art festival held on 12 islands and 2 ports in the Seto Inland Sea happens once every three years and has much to offer to art lovers seeking a special experience. From Naoshima to Teshima, over Ogijima and Oshima, the artworks are to be seen outdoors as well as in the outstanding museums.
