Art work No.25

“Bright house”

Kayako Nakashima (Japan)

  • Exhibition Area Shouin|Former the office in Iizuka
  • Viewing hours: 9:30-17:00
    Closed Thursdays (except for September 23, a national holiday)


Numerous holes have been drilled in the walls and roof of a vacant building that used to be the office of a diatomaceous earth factory. During the day, sunlight comes through the holes and lights up imitation lamps, and at night, light from the inside leaks out. The artist feels that “light” and “a bright house,” which symbolize hope and affluence, also represent modern desires. “Bright House” is a place where you can quietly ponder the “richness” of life in Suzu, a region that has been through many ups and downs.
