The eponymous modern art festival is held in the Niigata Prefecture in Japan, a snowy region in the winter. Echigo-Tsumari’s rich landscape of dense forests and rivers provide the perfect backdrop for an art festival with a mission of reconnecting people to site-specific art and installation. The open call for designs of Hong Kong House, an artists’ residence and exhibition space, was jointly organised by the Art Promotion Office of Hong Kong and the festival’s organizers. The house is to be both a residence and platform for artists to engage with the local community in their work.
