seedling transfer event [A Journey of Citrus Saplingseedling transfer event ]
Asa Village 1F
As part of the long-term art project “Commons Farm” started last year by the artist Satoshi Hirose, we will again be holding a citrus seedling transfer event this year.
This seedling transfer event, named ”A Journey of Citrus Sapling,” will entrust foster parents with citrus saplings to grow until a potential site for the farm (either abandoned or idle farmland) is found. Once we have found the site, we will plant the saplings there.
We hope to create a “park-like farm” that everyone can freely enjoy.
Why not become a foster parent of a sapling and grow citrus saplings with us?

Last year’s seedling transfer event:
Born in 1963, Tokyo. Currently lives and works in Milan. Based in Italy, he has participated in numerous exhibitions in Japan, Asia, Europe and other parts of the world. Satoshi Hirose is a contemporary artist who creates poetic works using the mediums of installation, environmental intervention, performance, sculpture, photography, drawing and, in a larger sense, projects. The creative principle of Hirose’s work is based on a de-disciplinary imagination, which links disparate cultures and objects across boundaries, consistently attempting to transform invisible concepts into tangible ones. She has been involved in a long-term project with mothers and children from a mother and child care home for 19 years, as well as an art project in which she works with local people to recycle materials used in her exhibitions.
