Kumamoto Art Polis / Kahoku Project
Presentation 10 years after completion
Land art 10 years after the work was completed; indeed, its condition after so many years enables the piece to be presented as a “work of art.” The contrast between the work and the forest is fading, as the mergence and assimilation begins, creating what can be said to be a “weathered” design.
From art of the land to artistic land: unable to exceed nature
This place is no longer just a piece of land for the purpose of sustaining a work of art. To start with, art cannot control or change nature. This piece is an attempt at creating the catalyst to enable the land to have an identity.
Imagining the form in 10 years time
As far as this land is concerned, 10 years is but a moment in time. But how about for a piece of land art? The design should at least imagine how it would look in 10 years time. This can be considered to be the sense necessary of artists who propose work amid nature.
