This is the best art exhibition that I've found in Japan so far. In the middle of nowhere, you will find 2 giant & ultra modern concrete buildings with big holes in the ceilings. You'll walk inside with bear foot and find water continuously springing forth from the fountains - nothing but true serenity. You need to make sure not to step on it as it is also part of the art work. The thin concrete structure does not have any pillars, and the art space is completely open to air, sound and natural light from two openings in the ceiling. It is the most stunning art workI've come across, and something I can't describe with words. I also enjoyed the olive rice at the cafe. This is the place where art, architecture and the environment come together as one.
The Teshima Art Museum was designed by Japanese architect Ryue Nishizawa and Japanese artist Rei Naito for the Setouchi International Art Festival in 2010.Teshima Art Museum, the collaborative creation of architect Ryue Nishizawa and artist Rei Naito, lies partway up a hill overlooking the Seto Inland Sea and is bordered by terraced rice fields, resulting in a beautiful fusion of nature, art and architecture. Inside, new ‘springs’ are constantly born from the work Matrix. Light, wind, and the voices of birds enter from above, conjuring an infinite array of impressions with the passage of seasons and the flow of time.
