Needle factory

An abandoned sewing needle factory, which closed in the late 1980s, stands in the village of Ieura Oka on Teshima. Installed within its space is a wooden hull-form used in the manufacturing of red snapper net fishing boats, neglected for some 30 years and never serving its original purpose after it was built in a shipyard in Uwajima. Each carrying their own memories, these two entities were juxtaposed through the artist’s vision, creating a new magnetic field in the art space they form together.
