About the artwork

A continuing project started in 2006 which moved its base to a guesthouse adjacent to a ski ground in the Sekiasa area in 2012. For ETAT2015, the artist took out the ceiling on the level two in order to fill the attic space with green leaves and set up a snow house behind the guesthouse filled with snow leaves. The artist ran workshop engaging local people and school students and created 20,000 green and 5000 snow leaves by the process of frottage of leaves collected locally. LIFE works, an artwork capturing memories of everyday life such as the wall of warehouse and folkcraft articles was displayed on the level one. Visitors were also invited to create green leaves during the festival.
