Seaside Inujima Gallery

ArtistFiona Tan

This video work combines island landscapes and people’s daily lives, observed during the artist’s residency on Inujima, with seascapes of the Seto Inland area. With scenes of the beautiful island, ruins of the manmade copper smelter and stone quarry, the Inujima Seirensho Art Museum and the Inujima “Art House Project”, the work meticulously depicts the regular lives of the island’s residents with special warmth.
