Artwork No. sd06

Shishigaki Island

The 2013 Triennale featured a reconstruction of a wall designed to keep out deer and boar. The original wall, built in a style unique to Shodoshima, is thought to be nearly 200 years old. This time, a pyramid of stones has been created as a visual depiction of Shodoshima’s unique culture, including the shape of its deer and boar walls and the form of its farming culture, as well as the transmission of ancient stoneworking skills. Ceramic mosaic tiles have also used in the installation.
