Setouchi Triennale 2013 Kick-off


Liminal Air Core - Olive Line


Today was the opening day of the Setouchi Triennale 2013!

It happened in the rain, and I didn’t attend any event because I had to work (bad timing), but worry not, I have a few days of vacation next week and you know where I’ll spend them.

  1. I’m interested in visiting. I kind of feel overwhelmed trying to figure out where to go or what to see.

    Do you have any advice or some suggestions of how to undertake visiting?

    1. Actually I should write a full post about this. It may be difficult though, not everyone is into the same things.
      The few advice I could give you right now is:
      – Take your time on the islands, don’t rush. If you’re not here long enough to see everything, just make choices, don’t try to see as many things as possible.
      – As you live nearby, don’t go to Naoshima, go another time, when there’s no festival. It’s better to go see the temporary art now, and Naoshima another time, another time with less visitors.
      – Be mindful of the ferry schedule, especially the last ferry of the day wherever you are.
      – Spend the day on Ogijima. 🙂

      This week-end, I’ll try to write a more detailed post.

      1. Thanks for the information.

        I can probably only visit for the day so is it better to just pay for access to individual places or get the passport thing?

        I’ll look forward to another more detailed post. I’m not sure many other people will find it useful because I specifically asked about it but feel free, haha.

        1. Concerning the passport, it really depends on a few factors:
          -Where you will go: Paying individual access on some islands will cost you more than the passport (especially islands where there are museums – Naoshima, Teshima, etc). If you go to the smaller islands maybe a passport is not worth it. For example, on Ogijima, visiting all of the art there will cost you 1,800 Yen if I’m correct, so it’s cheaper than a passport, but on Teshima, the Teshima Art Museum itself is 1,500 Yen.
          -Also, one passport allows you to attend the three sessions of the Triennale. It is the most expensive (5,000 Yen) but if you come back in Summer or in the Fall, it may be worth it, even if you come only one day every time.
