About the artwork

Toward 2024, we will be preparing the former Oakasawa Elementary School in Akiyamago as a new center for the intersection of mountain life and art. As a progress report, the ETAT 2022’s exhibition focused on a video of a matagi hunter filmed in the early 1990s by Taguchi Hiromi,  a 30-year resident of Akiyamago who has been studying the hunting culture from his own unique perspective. The exhibition will provide an opportunity to reconsider the culture of Akiyamago with valuable footage of many hunting techniques and rituals that have been lost today.
