About the artwork

Oakasawa Branch, established in 1924 as a long-awaited institution exempt from compulsory education in its region, was closed down in 2021. Continuing its legacy, the revitalized “Akeyama” derives its name from the origins of Akiyama, representing shared mountain land, derived from “Akeyama” (“Bright Mountain”). Under the guidance of the artist who continues his research of the area, “Akeyama” aims to serve as a “school for reclaiming the power of human life.” It fosters initiatives where locals, researchers, artists, and various individuals learn and practice the traditions and beliefs of “shared land.
