Instagram Project "Artists' Breath" has been launched

Instagram Project “Artists’ Breath” has been launched to deliver ongoing breaths of international artists participating in five festivals directed by Fram Kitagawa.
Various artists who have participated in Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale appears on this project. Please take a look.

The director of Artists’ Breath, Fram Kitagawa`s Message

Due to the spread of COVID-19, many exhibitions and events have been postponed or cancelled, including the three festivals I am directing, which were originally scheduled for this year.

In such times, I wanted to find out how artists are living and what they are thinking.
No artist is the same. This reflects the 7.7 billion people on this earth each having his/her own speech and physiology.

Now, 7.7 billion people are living the same moment and sharing a common experience, yet having different thoughts. I am moved and feel a sense of solemnness by this magnificent fact.
The aim of this project is to share this diversity.
I hope that in this seemingly blank everyday life, this could serve to create a rich platform for artists connected through the sea of life across the world.
