PHOTO DIARY: A DAY AT NAOSHIMA ART ISLAND.

Naoshima is a small island located in Kagawa prefecture in Japan. It is renowned for its collection of contemporary art galleries, exhibits, installations, design and architecture. This year Naoshima has been one of the main locations for 2013 Setouchi Triennale art festival.

The island is literally full of different kind of art works – outdoors along the beaches and roads, and inside in the numerous unique buildings. The west side of the island has three bigger museums: Lee Ufan Museum, Benesse Museum and Chichu Art Museum which have also pieces from Western artists all the way from Jackson Pollock to Claude Monet – Whereas on the east side in Honmura’s traditional neighbourhood takes place the Art House Project where artists have transformed abandoned houses into stand-alone projects.

The buildings of Naoshima are in itself attractions, including architecture from Miyanoura ferry terminal designed by SANAA to an public bathhouse art facility by Shinro Ohtake, and to museums by Ando Tadao and Ryue Nishizawa.
