On May 21, the artistic director of Yokohama Triennale 2014 Yasumasa Morimura unveiled its title, ART Fahrenheit 451: Sailing into the sea of oblivion, and presented the concept as follows:
Voyage through the sea of oblivion
The Yokohama Triennale 2014 aims
to explore the sea of “oblivion”
by means of a ship called “art,”
in a voyage along with
all those who believe in the possibility of artistic adventure
and those who seek out a bold view of the world.
The title of the exhibition in 2014, ART Fahrenheit 451, is needless to say derived from Ray Bradbury’s science fiction novel, Fahrenheit 451. It is a story about burning books and is set in a near-future society where people are forbidden to possess and read books.
