About the artwork

In 2003, the artist created a pair of giant wings and a chair with ceramic in Inubuse. During this Triennial as well, he spent the summer in the same village and placed a grasshopper-shaped playground slide made with ceramics in a rice field. He intended to use the work to make people feel the “rice field” from various angles while playing on the slide. The title, habitambo, is a word coined by combining “habitat” and “tambo,” meaning “rice field.” The artist will engage in rice cropping together with the villagers and aim to make it “our inagohabitambo”.
