About the artwork

This piece is a recreation of one from 2006 at a different location. “Cakra Kul-Kul” are windmills made of bamboo that are a common part of landscape of Bali, the artist’s homeland. These are woodcrafts set up in the fields by farmers before and after the harvest period to offer thanks to the gods. Visitors are engulfed by the lovely sound produced by the chorus of the bamboo moving in the wind and the smells of the fields and grasses. This piece connects Bali and Echigo-Tsumari as two areas that base their livelihoods on agriculture, and offers a universal prayer celebrating prosperity.
