 We are delighted to present new artworks for Shinano Primitive Sense Art Festival 2013.
Titled A spirit of the water from divine realm, this year's programme explores art's capacity
to call up the fundamental sense of Art in this moment at Shinano, where JYOMON (Ancient
Japanese) people used to live and to restore and strengthen relationship with nature and to
bring people back into relation in their home communities. Also this festival aims to generate
dialogue and, through collaboration, to fill the city with creativity by engaging with the local
community in order to convey new values to the world at large.
 Founded in 2010, Shinano Primitive Sense Art Festival is Omachi City’s largest annual
celebration of art. Uniquely, the festival offers the chance to experience the best contemporary
artists. Enjoy strolling along the Kizaki Lake and watch artists complete pieces, and you can
feel the dynamics of the nature and the earth. To express your original primitive sense, please
visit Shinano and Kizaki Lake in Omachi city where the beautiful lands of water welcome you
for the bud of new creation.
 For this residency stay, the organizers are looking forward to see an Artist who has a joy
bringing spirit from divine realm. Shinano Primitive Sense Art Festival 2013 brings together
artist-run spaces and emerging artists and an innovative programme of special events.
The vast majority of the festival is free to attend. We encourage to create connections
between art, the nature and the society as art has a power to develop creativities needed to
rejuvenate local communities as it intuitively sees through to the heart of such issues, finds
forgotten potentials and recovers disconnected ties among people.
 In our Artists page, you will find the list of the artists displaying their work and events.
We hope you’ll come along!
