22 Genyu Terrace



Kawamata creates his work in the forest surrounding the Northern Alps Eco Park, an under-construction waste disposal facility planned to begin operation in 2018 in Gen’yu village, which is located at the foot of the mountains. Even as the facility is still under construction, the Art School in Forest will be opened in the park during the art festival, inviting local forest experts and artists from overseas in order to revitalize various forest activities related to the area and the natural environment. Gen’yu Terrace demonstrates Kawamata’s belief that even the process of creation itself is a piece of art.
