The constellations are forms that human beings devised, using the power of our imaginations. At the same time, they served as guides for sailors navigating the ocean. In the middle of the ocean are the Galapagos, islands cut off from the rest of the world by the surrounding sea. There, over eons of time, a wide range of organisms developed along a unique evolutionary path. The seas divide the world, and at the same time connect them, working in diverse ways to foster the development of art and culture. Through works in a range of creative fields, Yokohama Triennale 2017 aims to reveal this process to the world.
