This event has ended.

The project, “Spirit of the Land”, creates moments in which we get a sense of a scene that is past = current = future. This is a project that Nishimura has continued for many years. What does it mean to have a conversation with the land? Touching the land is not just feeling the earth on the surface. If we extend our consciousness deeper and deeper we ride the convection of the earth’s mantle until we reach far into the universe. Through space, we can connect with the land and listen to its voice. “Movement” is also an important key word for Nishimura. When people, things, occurrences move from point A to point B, the events happening during this movement become a story that creates space. Thinking about the method of “movement,”the artist has gone into the mountains of Ozu City in Ehime Prefecture for this project, which has an important element of cutting down cedar trees to be moved, for which he also prepares roads.
