Naoshima (Dream on the tongue) is a journey across a small Japanese island in the Seto inland sea. Since the 90s, it is threatened by exodus, its population decreases and ages, its industry declines. As a result of a stunning contemporary art sponsoring project, Naoshima is changing. The pure timeless lines of the three museums designed by Tadao Ando, the contemporary artworks on site blend into the landscape, scattered along its shores, in the shadow of the forest.The presence of art is worrying, fascinating, inspiring, upsetting and becomes the beating heart of the island.
