We invite 24 up-and-coming artists from the prefecture and outside who are active in the front lines to 25 places such as accommodations in Mimasaka Santou (Yunogo Onsen, Yubara Onsen, Okutsu Onsen). Through the production and exhibition of their works, we will create and transmit new cultural values to the hot springs which can only be enjoyed in this place. The "Mimasaka Santou Art Temperature" expresses the warmth of the hot spring water, the warm hospitality of the hot spring inn, the excitement and discovery of art appreciation, and other various sensations that can be gained by actually experiencing the hot spring. The word "Temperature" expresses the hope that visitors will feel this "Temperature" and that they will discover new emotions and discoveries through their art work. By combining the sensitivity and creativity of artists with the history and culture of the Mimasaka Santou area, it invites visitors to the world of the deep attractiveness of the three hot springs (OH NO!) and creates new places for relationships such as meetings and exchanges with communities and people. This new way of enjoyment that can only be experienced here attracts and heals the hearts of visitors. (text: Publicity)
With the theme "Onsen Museum 2000 Years Later" Shibakawa will exhibit "PLANET REMAINS (Onsen ruins 2000 years later)" etc. It is said that Jikaku Daien Ninhoshi discovered this famous hot spring about 1200 years ago (Shirasagi) led by a white heron (Heian period). It is also known as "Sagi no Yu (Saginoyu)". We will research the townscape of Yunogo Onsen, liken the paper cranes to herons "a modern person excavated 2000 years later (41 century)", liken the kewpie dolls to (sagi) and introduce the lives and activities of the people of Yunogo Onsen. We will also exhibit our work at the DOT CAFE across the street. For details, please check the QR code at the venue.
