YOKOHAMA TRIENNALE 2011

SCAI THE BATHHOUSE is pleased to announce our participation in YOKOHAMA TRIENNALE 2011.

The Yokohama Triennale 2011, entitled "OUR MAGIC HOUR", will present artworks that respond to and/or reflect on the thematic question, "How much of the world can we know?", and allude to the magical and mysterious powers in our daily lives and the world, as well as those that refer to mythology and legend. The Triennale will be a vibrant exhibition that will showcase the works of dynamic contemporary Japanese and international artists, along with some pieces from the collection of the Yokohama Museum of Art and other institutions.

Tadanori Yokoo will show a series of paintings from his new Black Y-Junction Series.
Apichatpong Weerasethakul's work entitled "PRIMITIVE", an 8-channel installation related to his award-winning film at Cannes Film Festival "Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives" will be premiered in Japan.
"Smoking Bench" by Jeppe Hein is a work that makes smokes rise when someone sits on and eventually the person will be disappeared in the smokes.
Jeon Joonho will present a finely carved sculpture dealing with Buddhist thoughts,
and Atsushi Saga created a sight specific work on a museum wall which retains immaculate mirror-like surface.
