丸亀市猪熊弦一郎現代美術館

猪熊弦一郎現代美術館はJR丸亀駅の真ん前にある。
駅前広場と一体で整備され、美術館の設計は谷口吉生、広場のランドスケープデザインはピーター・ウォーカーである。
全国で初めてというJR駅前の美術館の誕生は猪熊弦一郎自身の思いが起点になっているようだ。
「現代美術という同時代に生きている芸術を扱う美術館は静かな場所にひっそりとあるのではなく、常に動き続ける日常的な場所の中にあり、人々の憩いの場、ふれあいの場となるものでなければならない。」
美術館の脇には、この土地が個人の寄付によるものだという銘板があった。
猪熊弦一郎という強烈な個性を中心に、行政を含めた地域社会が一体となってつくりだした稀有な美術館だと思う。
訪れた際、小学生くらいの女の子が二人だけでやってきて、石橋義正の「SickeTel」展をまじまじと鑑賞しているのがとても印象的だった。

 

MARUGAME GENICHIROU- INOKUMA MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART  [ Dec 01 by AO ]

 

Marugame Genichirou-Inokuma Museum of Contemporary Art is located just in front of the JR Marugame Station.
That museum was arranged by unifying the station front square into one unit.
Its building was designed by Yoshio Taniguchi and its landscape of the square was designed by Peter Walker.
It is told that the birth of this museum just in front of the JR station which is the first one in whole Japan is rooted in such a thought of Genichirou Inokuma himself as 「The museum handling contemporary arts should not be standing at a quiet place but should be in the daily place always moving where people relax and come in touch with each other.」
On one side of it, there was a commemorative plaque showing that its land was donated by a private person.
I think that this is a very rare museum that was built up by the united whole communities including administration, with a core of an intense personality of Genichirou Inokuma.
When I visited there, what impressed me most is the scene that only two young girls like primary school kids were looking zealously at the exhibition of「Sicke Tel」.
