Extraordinary meetings with Yutaka Sone
The world knows the Japanese artist Yutaka Sone (1965) because of his impressive sculptures, of marble and woven bamboo. But he is also famous for his desire to change the existing structures of the art scene.
A year ago he started organizing special meetings with fellow artists, to talk about the future and to make plans to radically change the old habits of the art world. There was an extraordinary picnic in a marble quarry in Carrara, Italy, followed by a bonfire at the Sifang Art Museum of Nanjing, China. Later this year, Yutaka will meet a group of artists during an event at the border of the holy lake of Michoacán, Mexico.
I’ve been following him around the world to document these surprising happenings in a series of short films. Finally this will result in a feature-length documentary about the artist, his life, his thoughts and his motives.
