Another Singularityもうひとつの特異点

Art Museum

This work of art was entered in the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale. One of the world’s largest international art festivals, the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale is held once every three years in Echigo-Tsumari (Tsunan Town and Tokamachi City, Niigata Prefecture), one of Japan’s snowiest areas. Housed inside of a vacant home in Tokamachi, a city experiencing depopulation and population aging, the piece represents the beginnings of the universe. The home in which the piece is displayed has had its walls removed, leaving the pillars, beams, and other structural components exposed. The figure of a person emerges from a complex matrix in the center of 682 cords attached to the floor, walls, and celling. The piece was created by British artist Antony Gormley.

          Found along the northwestern coast of Japan, Niigata prefecture is celebrated for its high-quality rice and breathtaking nature, most notably its spectacular mountains, whose white peaks draw in snow sports lovers from far and wide over the winter months. Hit the slopes at Yuzawa, pick out your favourite modern artist at Echigo Tsumari, or take a ferry over to Sado Island for an extra adventure.
