Towada Oirase Art Festival

Details

The earthquake and subsequent events of March 11, 2011, shook Japan’s sense of time. A quake of this magnitude is said to happen once in a thousand years, and made a shocking impact on the human realm built over the last few hundred. The theme of time formed the basis for this festival, which took place throughout the city of Towada and amongst the breathtaking natural beauty of the nearby Oirase Gorge and Lake Towada. Oirase Gorge and Lake Towada are home to a complex and diverse ecosystem that has developed over tens of thousands of years. By presenting different “times” across the gorge and lake, the festival exploredour current relationship to art, and asked, where to from here?
