越後妻有大地藝術祭
Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial


何謂越後妻有大地藝術祭?
What is Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale ?

三年一度的越後妻有大地藝術祭始於2000年,為世界最大型的國際戶外藝術節。以農田作為舞台,藝術作為橋樑,連繫人與自然,試圖探討地域文化的承傳與發展,重振在現代化過程中日益衰頹老化的農業地區。藝術祭透過鼓勵藝術家進入社區,融合當地環境,與村民一起創作出與大自然及社區共生的藝術品。我們現在正與來自世界各地,逾100位藝術家及徵求團體準備今年夏天舉行的第五屆越後妻有大地藝術祭。
The Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale is an international art festival held every three years since 2000. With the Echigo-Tsumari region as its stage, it is the world’s largest art festival by area. The overall objective of the event is to employ art as a vehicle for revealing the latent values embedded in the region, enhancing their appeal and spreading them to the world, in order to find a way to revitalize the region. We are very pleased to announce that there will be over 100 artists and projects for the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale 2012.

「投入自然的懷抱」
“People embraced by nature”

越後妻有接待來自不同地區的人士。在這個地方,我們卸載了都巿人的價值觀。「大地藝術祭」是本著「投入自然的懷抱」的理念而舉行的。

我們深信如果老年人在那地方生活得悠然自得,那便是一個令人快樂的地方。因此,我們很希望看到那些老面孔的笑臉。「大地藝術祭」是希望透過藝術的力量、當地人民的智慧以及社區的資源,共同振興當地農村的面貌。在不同年齡,來自不同背景和地區的人士協助下,三年一度的藝術祭將會在今年舉辦第五屆。我們將再次回到我們的起點,踏上幸福的旅程。
在預備2012年的藝術祭期間,縱然遇上了暴雨、大雪和地震,但我們沒有因此而氣餒。這些活動,讓我們走進了日本東北地區,重燃人們的希望和理想,讓我們更鞏固「投入自然的懷抱」的理念。

Many people from all walks of life have come and share the sense of place unique to Echigo-Tsumari. Central theme of the activities conducted under the Triennale is “people embraced by nature”.

Our deepest wish is to bring smiles on the faces of the senior residents, as we believe that places where elderly people lives happily are places of happiness. The Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale believes in the power of art to drive rural revitalization, through revealing regional assets, learning from local wisdom and creating artworks that revive spaces. Thanks to the support of people of different ages and backgrounds from Japan, and overseas. The Triennale will be held for the fifth time this year. With gratitude for all of those who have been involved, we return once more to our starting point, and embark on a journey dedicated to happiness.

Echigo-Tsumari’s preparations for the Triennale 2012 is being conducted under trying conditions since 2011. The region is experiencing unusually snowy winter, the aftermath of earthquakes from the 3-11 disaster and torrential rain. With wishes for reconstruction and hopes as these activities reach out to Tohoku, we remind ourselves of the basic principle of “people embraced by nature”.

小蛇隊義工
Be our volunteer, Join the Kohebi-tai!

香港的義工團隊於2006年開始參與第三屆越後妻有大地藝術祭。十五位來自香港大學的大學生及從日本城市來的年輕人,組成「小蛇隊」與農村裡的老人家走在一起,創造出近300件充滿當地風土人情的藝術作品,來迎接這三年一度的盛事。義工在大會的指導下,從事清理、木工及美勞等工作,這些活動促成各類的溝通,令當地的居民,旅客和義工在美不勝收的米田上打成一片。工作過後泡浸溫泉和晚上的經驗分享則為每一天畫上一個完美又充實的句號。

我們期待2012年可以有更多香港的義工一起參與,有興趣參與的人士請盡快與我們聯絡 !

The Hong Kong volunteers began to participate in the 3rd Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale 2006. Fifteen volunteers from the University of Hong Kong and students from urban Japan form a team known as “Kohebi-tai” (little shrimp gang) participated in the making of over 300 artworks. Volunteers were assigned a variety of tasks from simple clean-up, carpentry to fulfilling all sorts of creative ideas from artists and local residents. A day's work was usually summarized with a trip to hot spring and a night of sharing different experiences.

As our volunteer base continues to increase and strengthen over the years, we have begun recruiting volunteers for the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale 2012. Please contact us as soon as possible for more information.
