The Setouchi Triennale 2016 is held over three sessions, Spring (March 20 – April 17), Summer (July 18 – September 4) and Fall (October 8 – November 6) on 12 islands of the Seto Inland Sea in the Prefectures of Kagawa and Okayama, as well as in the ports of Takamatsu and Uno.
Below you will find all the posts, articles and pictures pertaining to the Triennale. Enjoy.
Beyond the Border(s) – The Ocean by Lin Shuen-long is a wonderful Art Setouchi artwork that has been sitting in Takamatsu Sunport for four years now, and I realize that I never wrote a proper post about it. So, I’m doing it before it’s too late. And first, why is […]
Kanrin House by Rikuji Makabe is located in the village of Tomari on Honjima. It was part of the Setouchi Triennale 2016, but I believe it will still be around in 2019. May I add that I think it’s one of the most beautiful artworks of Art Setouchi? […]
You know what happens when you write two blogs in two different languages, with roughly (but not always) the same content? Sometimes, you “forget” some posts, sometimes you imagine that they exist when they don’t. And this is what happened to me a couple of days ago. Looking for a […]

The Room Inside of the Room is an artwork by Oscar Oiwa that you can see on Ogijima. No, it’s not what you think, the picture’s orientation is indeed correct. Fun fact: last year, I got to write a few articles in a few magazines about the Setouchi […]
Dream of Olive by Wang Wen-Chich The amazing bamboo construction is still standing in the valley of Nakayama on Shodoshima and will stay there until the bamboo is too old (then it’ll be dismantled, and hopefully a new incarnation will show up at the end of winter […]
Well, it’s not because the Setouchi Triennale 2016 is over that it’s too late for a few more interviews of the artists that took part in it, is it? Recently, Esther Stocker and I exchanged a few e-mails about it, and she kindly answered a few of my questions. Here […]
The Setouchi Triennale 2016 ended two and half months ago. It’s winter. Most remaining artworks are closed until the Spring. Preparations for the Setouchi Triennale 2019 are no more than some thoughts and ideas at the moment. However, I was given some documents debriefing the festival. It’s all in Japanese, […]
