Brazilian artist Christina Oiticica buried her art works along the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage routes in February of this year. She arrived in Japan on November 28th to complete her Kumano art project.
In the morning of the 29th staff from the Tanabe City Kumano Tourism Bureau, Wakayama Prefectural officials and Tanabe City officials gathered to support Christina’s excavation activity.
The excavation activities were done in four places; the field in front of restaurant Bocu in Chikatsuyu, near the Kumano Kodo Nakahechi Art Museum, on a ridge overlooking Oyunohara and the Nanakoshimine Ridge along the Omine Okugake route.
After exhuming her art she continues to prepare the works for the exhibition at the Kumano Hongu Heritage Center.
We wonder how her art works will be transformed by the energy of Kumano.
We are all looking forward to seeing her art exhibition.
