Anri Sala at Benesse Art Site Naoshima, Japan

October 8, 2016- ongoing

Anri Sala has been conceiving a project for Teshima during the past three years, since winning the 10th Benesse Prize. The installation entitled ALL OF A TREMBLE will be exhibited in the Teshima Seawall House, where the video footage of both an improvising saxophone and a shakuhachi (a Japanese bamboo flute) resonate gives the impression of the house as an organic entity, pulsing with life.

The once-abandoned house is brought to life, inviting viewers to reflect on the displacement and lives of human beings as well as to physically experience "the meeting of two different worlds" -- outside and inside, eastern and western, contrasting instruments, ocean and sky, the artificial and the natural, social and private.
