Nature – from the point of view of the global art 

Art exhibition in the forest of SATO-YAMA (village-mountain) in the past, which began in 1997. We named “MORI-LAB” as a collectively referred of this experimental project three years ago. And we built up participation type of event as the forest maintenance and workshop, not just looking at the exhibited artworks. In the art exhibition in this year, we have invited artists a total of eight, Cote d’Ivoire/living in Germany, Lithuania, Korea, USA) four Overseas, and four of Japan. This is an attempt to embody the nature of the forest from the point of view of the global art. It is the highlight of this project that how the circumstance and idea of nature of each artists will connect to art expressions in this forest.
We will plan a forum together with participating artists talk about “Nature + Art site” of each countries.
