Kobe Biennale Grand Prize

*The images of works are those at the time of application. These images may be different from the actual exhibits.

By symbolically representing natural elements such as the seasonal coloring of leaves and a murmuring stream, which suggest a landscape abounding with nature inherited from previous generations, the installation proposes a space for the coexistence of humans and nature, and for the constant, close appreciation of unspoiled nature.
