Artwork No. sm08
Oiwa Island 2
The doors painted on an air dome reminiscent of a spaceship with a six-meter radius will serve as the gateway through which visitors enter the dome. Inside, one will see a panoramic view in all directions depicting the scenery of Setouchi. There will be depictions of trees, boats, islands and cats, along with waves painted on the floor. Viewers will feel as if they have been enveloped by a painting. The black-and-white illustrations were produced purely with 150 permanent markers.
(The work was previously installed in 2016 at the soy sauce storehouse in the town of Tonosho, Shodoshima. Now the exhibit continues following a relocation to the Sakaide Municipal Manyo Hall.)
