In 2012, Christian Marclay was invited to create an artwork for 'Mixed Bathing World', a contemporary art festival held in the town of Beppu, Japan, famous for its onsen (hot springs). It has eight major geothermal hot spots, sometimes referred to as the 'Eight Hells of Beppu'. On a jetty near the harbor Marclay installed a field of 100 flags banners, 50 represented water and 50 fire. At the bottom corner of each flag he attached a small bell. This ArtBook CD includes an innovative work made of sound and pictures. A perceptual process which allows us to experience the world around us. French and English. Size: 6.5 x 8.5 inch.
