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 (艾 艾), 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 promotes activities as if extending the concept of art. It consists of lifejackets and lifeboats that the refugees who had landed on the island of Lesbos actually wore across the Mediterranean from the Middle East and North Africa. From the horde of lifejackets worn by people in extreme conditions, whether living or dying, you may hear a silent cry.

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 Indonesia-East Java-born Joko Aviant who is thinking about the traditional culture that is being lost at home, and the symbiosis of humans 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.

The work "Project Takuramakan" is the birthplace of the artist and is an image of the act of carrying and wiring a huge refrigerator in the middle of the Takuramakan desert, the world's second largest desert, and drinking cold beer. . The used 100-kilometer wire will also be on display, reminding of the vast desert and contemporary isolation.

At Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse No. 1, we presented new works related to "Yokohama"

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 body and public sculpture. The current team of the weight-lifting Polish national team is trying to lift the sculptures of historical figures in Warsaw, and the public sculptures of Yokohama to try to improve the flow of spirit in Japan just before the Olympics. Watch the video of the masseuse trying to loosen up while actually lying on or sitting on the treatment bed or chair.

Other interesting works are visuals that bring out theatrical space, with home appliances and remodeled electric guitars produced by Tokyo-born Mutsuki Ujino producing movements and sounds. 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 makes it possible to highlight the existence of a homogeneous world, as we live in Japan.

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 from Shizuoka Prefecture, born in Yanagi. Godzilla, who sees from here with big eyes 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 do not want to walk too much on the move, you may want to start watching from the same building as the Minato Mirai Line Nippon Odori Station. I think it would be nice to walk from here to BankART Studio NYK for a few minutes and take the bus to other venues.

Inter-site free bus also operates

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.

Install the free voice guide app

If you install the "Yokohama Triennale 2017 voice guide" app on your smartphone, you can listen to the guide of the work and the interview of the artist. Since Wi-Fi can be used free of charge at each venue, please download and use the app.
