Held once every three years, the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale is one of the largest international outdoor art festivals in the world. Using art as a catalyst, the Triennale provides a platform to present projects and initiatives which aims to reveal existing assets of the region and rebuilds the relationship between human and nature through artistic creation, appreciation and participation. The Hong Kong House, a new art hub set up by the Art Promotion Office and collaborated with the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale in 2018, serves as a showcase of Hong Kong art talents and a sustainable platform for arts and cultural exchange. In the past two years, Leung Chi Wo + Sara Wong (2018) and Annie Wan (2019) resided in Tsunan to get nutrients and inspirations from the land and to interact with residents to facilitate their artistic creations. Leveraged the Hong Kong House as a platform, their distinctive artworks were staged. This year, L sub (2020) will take visitors on a journey away from the hustle and bustle of city and being delighted in a thought-provoking experience in the Hong Kong House.
With the approach of the 8th Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale in 2021 and preparation for this 3-year Hong Kong House project, Art Promotion Office invited Hong Kong artists and cross-disciplinary creative talents to submit artwork proposals from late April to 30 June 2020. The selection will be conducted in August 2020 tentatively. Selected artists or art groups will receive notification and the results will be announced in this website in due course.
