Chain Museum invites artists to Kazuyo Sejima’s Forest House

 

Nestled within a mountainous area covered by deep forests, a private house designed in 1994 by Kazuyo Sejima Architects becomes a stage for new creations by various artists invited by The Chain Museum in Japan. Dubbed Tateshina Forest House, the building is surrounded by lush trees and reflects the shadows of vegetation on its white-painted facade. The interior takes the form of an open, light-filled studio, an ideal creative space for artists.

 

The artist-in-residence program is hosted by the Chain Museum and is scheduled to be implemented in the fall of 2022. The project will provide a venue for artistic activities for up-and-coming creatives who are expected to grow in the future. The first artist invited is Bordeaux-born Kota Tomozawa, known for her unique drawn portraits that blend slime-like substances and organic motifs.

tranquil residence welcomes Kotao Tomozawa

 

With this program, the Chain Museum, which operates the art education platform ArtSticker, aims to support the production of promising artists and contribute to the promotion of domestic art and culture. Designed by Kazuyo Sejima Architects, Tateshina Forest House immerses artists in a tranquil, nature-filled environment that is different from their usual production space. The residence offers guests the opportunity to focus on creative production, as well as explore new perspectives and inspirations. 

 

Surrounded by the rich natural environment and serene all-white interiors, Kotao Tomozawa will draw artful portraits combining simple compositions with realistic expressions of texture, transparency, and softness that leave a strong impression on the viewer. The resulting works will be on sale exclusively for ArtSticker from October 11 to October 25.
