April 12: Art houses

A short shuttle bus ride away from Benesse complex is Honmura, another Naoshima art project that turns old houses from this sleepy island village into art. We walked around the village following the ‘art house map’. There were around 10 or so? Installing art in a remote fishing village may sound cheesy and potentially pretentious, but none of them were. They were all incredibly thoughtful and just really really amazing to experience. The best part was that it felt as if they belonged there. It was as if you don’t know where art ends and life begins.
