Takeshi Kitano’s sculpture at the 2013 Setouchi Triennale, Anger from the Bottom

The Setouchi Triennale is a contemporary art festival occurring every three years on the islands between Honshu and Shikoku. This summer we visited Shodoshima island where a sculpture drawn by the famous actor and director Takeshi Kitano is displayed. Kenji Yanobe arranged and built the structure. The title of the artwork is “Anger from the Bottom”. It consists of a mechanical sculpture of an seemingly evil spirit emerging of a well. The piece is animated every hour and is located close to the Sakate port which is also the boarding point of the ferry linking Shodoshima to Kobe.
