Scaled-Up Massive Art Exhibition teamLab: A Forest Where Gods LiveActivity
teamLab will hold its annual art exhibition, teamLab: A Forest Where Gods Live , again this year in Mifuneyama Rakuen (Takeo Hot Springs, Kyushu, Japan). This is the fifth year that this exhibition, which teamLab considers its life work, will be on display.
The exhibition will be open to the public from July 12 until November 4, 2019.
Compared to last year, this year’s teamLab exhibition will be on a larger scale, taking place on the 500,000 square-meter grounds of Mifuneyama Rakuen with over 19 artworks, including several never-before-seen pieces.
teamLab aims to explore a new relationship between humans and nature, and between oneself and the world through art. teamLab sees no boundary between humans and nature, and between oneself and the world; one is in the other and the other in one. Everything exists in a long, fragile yet miraculous, borderless continuity of life. The shapes of the giant rocks, caves, forests, and the garden of Mifuneyama itself have been formed over an incredibly long time and have been shaped by the interaction between humans and nature over the millennia. People in every age have tried to understand the significance of this nature through their practices, and this accumulation of understanding and interaction have made Mifuneyama Rakuen into the place it is today. By bringing our own understanding and turning these forms into art without any physical alteration, teamLab hopes to find new meaning and become a part of this endless cycle of “Continuous Life.”
