Artist Statement
Kawamata: Kanazawa Squatters’ Project

For this international exhibition held as part of the “Culture Citiy of East Asia” program of Kanazawa City, I planned a project of turning an entire building located close to the museum into a work of art. This project was made possible through the good offices of the owner of the Hakuichi Building, who agreed to rent the whole building to me during the exhibition period.

I will stay in the building and work on the project while also introducing my earlier work. And I hope to present the building in its entirety, both inside and out, as a work of art. Come to think of it, this creative endeavor is drawn from the series of apartment projects conducted from around 1982 to 1986.

The work may appear an abruptly-materialized unknown object, totally incongruous with the surrounding landscape, which includes the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa.

It is my hope, however, that something different will come into view from this standpoint.

But first, come and experience this Squatters’ Building for yourself.
