Early summer has come; green is back to museum. At the same time I’m breathing fresh air, I already decided to go Ichihara Lakeside Museum when time comes. Basically featured exhibition was regularly held and those theme are usually along modern art related. When I think where I go next is depending on theme and this time’s theme ruled me which is by Carsten Nicolai’s works. Of course another reason I went there is cool architecture tho.
You can say hello to idyllic landscape while getting to this museum. Easy to imagine from picture above.
Once you enter this museum, you will first see this symbolic object. You can actually touch this object and take picture with. Some people were playing with this works.
Photo with my ticket today. This is going to get my memory back when digging up this photo again in the future.
The featured exhibition was Carsten Nicolai.
Description on the wall in English. I didn’t check if there is brochure in English or not but seems there is as well.
This room took me to illusion world. Intense light source comes from ceiling. The reflected pattern won’t be the same. A couple of people played with standing between light source and screen wall so I did too. haha
His main exhibition at this time should be reflected on this picture. The room filled with darkness to highlight works. There are bench in the middle of this room for visitor but.. it’s hard to find them in darkness and I was the one.
Play with sounds shoot by many speaker system around me.
Honestly I didn’t expected that I faced this type of path. Can you guess what this narrow path for..
Here it is. The path take me to rooftop!
One couple was dancing on the roof walking through part of art work. You can actually touch them. So to speak experienced-based art.
Many children froliced with. And I did too haha.
Being said there is rule for it. How to play and how to NOT play. The description on the wall is designed using pixel art.
Speaking of pixel, the web page for this museum also has pixel focused design in some part.
Today was relatively high temperature outside that made looking for anywhere cool…like underground. Let’s step down haha.
There is one exhibition by Ryota Kawakubo’s in basement. Seemingly his work focuses on form which generated sophisticated light and shadow. The basement is done..
An architecture model for this museum is placed at the corner of archive room. This museum actually renovated and open in 2013. I like unique shape.
Photo from street near by.
The big picture around museum. It can be bucolic I would say.
The blue sky! Made my day!
Whenever I’m looking for beautiful and experience based art but honestly rare to catch those facilities. However contrary to that general case, this museum take me to ideal world where I like. Architecture itself is worth to see and walking through inside also interesting for art and architecture person. Moreover not only that case, once you look around outside you would feel pastoral landscape. On the other hand this museum is bit far to get around from Tokyo so you need to pitch plan in advance.
