16 Trieb– Forest in Rain

Toshikatsu Endo


Miyanomori Nature Park, where Endo’s works are installed, is home to different species of flowering skunk cabbages and embodies the beautiful, abundant land of Shinano Omachi.Endo draws water from the forest stream and by splashing it out  as if there were a faucet attached to the forest which anyone can twist open to their heart’s content, he represents the overwhelming volume, form, weight and sound of the water from the Northern Alps flowingswiftly beneath the ground in Shinano Omachi. “Trieb – Forest in Rain” clears the wandering thoughts from the minds of the viewers, transfixing the beautiful nature of Shinano Omachi before them and inviting them into a part of the forest.
