A Forest Where Gods Live, the art of teamLab returns to Japan

Giulia Pacciardi

Finally, after the official reopening, the teamLab collective has announced that its annual Outdoor Exhibition will be held again this year.
From this summer until next October, the beautiful Mifuneyama Rakuen forest in Kyushu, Japan, will once again be invaded by 22 digital works that aim to challenge our understanding of time, space, and the relationship between man and nature.

Inside the 500,000 square meter park, also famous for housing Okuso, the 3,000-year-old sacred tree of the Takeo Sanctuary, it is not clear where the uncultivated wonder of the forest ends and where the garden on which man has placed his hands begins, creating a continuum between nature and human being in which the viewer gets lost and immersed.

Inside the exhibition A Forest Where Gods Live it will be possible to see, among others, a projection of Koi carp and small boats on the surface of the Mifuneyama Rakuen pond, the reproduction of a waterfall on the big sacred rock of the sanctuary of Inari Daimyojin and also a big work dedicated to Enso on a rock.

This is the sixth consecutive year in which TeamLab works in the forest and gardens of Mifuneyama Rakuen to transform nature into a true work of art without ever damaging it.
