Hojoki Shiki in 2018: The Universe of Ten Foot Square Huts

Back To Artwork List

About This Artwork

One of the main highlights of this year's art triennale. The concept of this exhibition follows the footsteps of Kamo no Chomei, a Japanese writer and essayist who viewed a world of upheaval and disrupt in a small hut; today, using the smallness of this hut, sized at a mere 2.73 sq. m. we think of new possibilities and ideations. The selected designs that have come to life in this exhibition are a collection of cafes, bars, ateliers, homes and more, gathering together and creating a little "village". This exhibitions aims to be the beginning of the "Hojoki Shiki Village: 100 years initiative" as each of the huts following this exhibition will be transported into different parts of the city to revitalise the city centre.
