Tetsuya Umeda
“In Beppu” is an arts festival inviting one internationally active artist or artist group to Beppu for the realization and exhibition of a work utilizing the city’s regional characteristics. For the 5th edition contemporary artist Tetsuya Umeda, who is active across multiple disciplines including music, visual art and performing art, has been invited.

The exhibition is entitled Zero Tai. To quote Umeda's own words, “Zero” indicates a “hole” or literally “count zero” before the origin of things.

Zero Tai is an interactive work in which visitors are led on a tour of several locations using maps and audio cues. The venues include not only Beppu's unique topography and spaces, but also places that are usually inaccessible to people. The film work Zero Tai, set in the same locations, will also be shown in a movie theater. In addition, a website will be launched as a venue for the presentation of works that will evolve as the exhibition progresses, and a book under the same title is due to be published after the exhibition.
