Kamiyama Artist in Residence
Creating "Global Kamiyama" is the main purpose behind the KAIR Project. Their hope is that the artists will produce works full of originality, influenced by the experience of spending time amidst the timeless nature of Kamiyama, deep in the Japanese countryside, and inspiration from interacting with the local people. Through the works created by the artists as they come into contact with the tangible and intangible ‘God’s Mountain’ (the meaning of ’Kamiyama’), they hope to be able to discover what impact ‘encounters with the unknown’ has upon the artists and the community itself.
To produce at least of one piece of art and give a presentation about the work.
The KAIR will provide a studio at a school or other place for the artist.
KAIR will provide one apartment in a ferroconcrete tw-story row house approximately 60m2 with kitchen, shower, toilet and three tatami rooms. KAIR can host 3 artists at a time.
