We are proceeding “YUKUHASHI Sculpture Biennale 2019” for the purpose of cultural development of our city, and we’ve invited sculptors to enter the biennale contest from all over the world.
In parallel with this contest, we will start "2nd YUKUHASHI Artworks Object Project", to stimulate our town by installing many sculptures along streets and in the public places.
This project will go on as follows.
Sculptors will stay at volunteer’s house in YUKUHASHI city and produce sculptures by stone in a symposium style. They are expected to show their way of making sculptures to the audience. The outcome sculptures will be exhibited as symbols of commercial area of the town.
The Art Works will become new symbols in our street area.
YUKUHASHI is a small town which has a limited budget for a new event, and be able to offer artists plain accommodations to stay which are offered by volunteer citizens. We can pay only 200,000 yen including the airplane fare.
Artists will be staying in private family houses and work in a tent set in an open space. Although accommodation services are limited we will welcome the participating artists with warmest possible Japanese hospitality.
