Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale, Part VII/大地の芸術祭、パート7

On September 4, I went to see the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale for the third time.  I went to the "Hachi & Seizo Tashima - Picture Books and Tree Nuts Art Museum" first.
9月4日、大地の芸術祭を見に行きました。これで三度目です。まずは「鉢&田島征三・絵本と木の実の美術館」に行きました。
"What is this artwork," I wondered.
「この作品は何だろう」と思いました。
Entrance:
入り口:
This is an abolished school turned museum.
ここは、廃校だったところを美術館にしたところです。
I had lunch at Hachi Cafe.
Hachi Cafeで昼食を食べました。
Cucumbers, micro tomatoes, and edible hozuki (Physalis alkekengi) were offered for free.
きゅうり、マイクロトマト、食べられるほおづきが無料で提供されていました。
I ordered "Taiyo no Arroz" (lit. Rice of the Sun) (1,000 yen) and a cup of iced coffee (300 yen).
「太陽のアロス」(1,000円)とアイスコーヒー(300円)を頼みました。
"Taiyo no Arroz" is Spanish-style takikomi gohan.
「太陽のアロス」とはスペイン風の炊き込みご飯です。
So, what was the workwork in front of the entrance?  This YouTube video will answer this question (at 2:25 and after).
入り口の前にあった作品は何だったのでしょう?このYouTubeビデオを見れば分かります(2:25以降)。


To be continued.
