On the outer wall at the entrance of the Yokohama Museum of Art, there are large-scale installations related to the refugee problem that contemporary artist Ai Wei Wei (生 ま れ 生 ま れ), born in Beijing, China, is working on. I. Wayway is an artist who is always involved in the social situation in which he is placed and is promoting activities as if extending the concept of art. It consists of lifejackets and lifeboats that the refugees who had landed on Lesbos across the Mediterranean from the Middle East and North Africa were actually wearing it. From the horde of lifejackets worn by people in extreme conditions, whether living or dying, you can hear silent shouts.

At the Grand Gallery, just past the entrance, there is a huge Japanese-style motif, such as the Japanese traditional motif A bamboo installation will greet you. This work is by Joko Aviant of Indonesia and East Java born in Indonesia, who repeatedly examines the traditional culture that is being lost in Japan and the coexistence of human and nature. The artist himself made about 1500 pieces of bamboo in his home country using his own technique. It is quite large, and there is plenty of presence even if you look from the second floor.

Christian Yankovsky "The History of Heavyweight" 2013 Photographer: Szymon Rogynski Courtesy: the artist, Lisson Gallery

Known for his humorous works born in Gottingen, Germany, Christian Yankoffsky offers a trilogy that mentions the relationship between the body and the public sculpture. The current team of the weight-lifting Polish national team is trying to lift the sculptures of historical figures in Warsaw, and to improve the "flow of spirit" in Japan just in front of the Olympics, they admire public sculptures in Yokohama. Watch the video of the masseuse trying to loosen up while actually lying and sitting on the treatment bed and chair.

Other interesting visual works are home appliances by Ujino Sotsuki, born in Tokyo, and remodeled electric guitars that produce movements and sounds, and create theater spaces. The stage is the daily life of industrialized Twentieth Century Japan after the war, how individuals face the material society The artist is trying to connect with and reconstitute it with the artist's own English narrative. The depiction of the situation in the flowing images of the scene, we will highlight the existence of the world in which we live and the world in which we are homogenized.

Works are also displayed in the basement of the Yokohama City Port Opening Memorial Hall, which can not usually be accommodated

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the opening, and the Yokohama Port Opening Memorial Hall is currently designated as an important cultural asset of the country. You can appreciate the works by going into the basement where you can not usually get inside. In the dark underground, there is a Godzilla made of scrap wood by Yanagi Yukinori, who was born in Shizuoka Prefecture. Godzilla, who sees here with a big eye from the rubble, is powerful. There are also works that cast questions on Japan's "now", such as those representing Article 9 of the Constitution in LED, and works in which the Japanese flag breaks down with a motif. If you don't want to walk too much, it may be better to start looking from the same building as the Minato Mirai Line Nippon Odori Station. From here I would like to walk a few minutes to BankART Studio NYK and take the bus to another venue.

Free bus also runs between venues

Between the Yokohama Museum of Art and the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse, there is a free bus running between the venues, which is decorated by the artist's hand every 30 minutes (every 15 minutes on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays). There are also buses connecting the Koganemachi Bazaar site and BankART Studio NYK, so you can enjoy the art tour while checking the operation information.
