This exhibition is organized to commemorate The World Aquatics Championships – Fukuoka 2023. It features roughly 30 art pieces, each with unique interpretations and representations of water. Some artworks draw inspiration from various water-related myths, while others depict diverse ecosystems teeming with creatures. Certain pieces reflect the social context in their portrayal of water or artist’s personal memories associated with it.
Additionally, visitors can enjoy a relaxing experience on a fish-shaped bench situated on the lawn of Boat Race Fukuoka, one of the venues for the World Aquatics Championships – Fukuoka 2023. This unique bench is designed to allow wind to pass through it, adding to the overall experience.
