Path to the SKY. Go and see for yourself

ichihara lakeside museum

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.

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.

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.

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.
