A Journey of Citrus Sapling Letter vol.5 from Satoshi Hirose

A Journey of Citrus Sapling began as part of Satoshi Hirose's art projectCommons Farm,” which started in October 2023.

This art project asks foster parents to grow citrus saplings until a potential farmland (abandoned farmland or idle farmland) for commons farm is found. After that, we plan to plant the saplings in the farmland.

This newsletter is sent irregularly to the 30 foster parents of seedlings that Mr. Hirose has participated in in the past.

We will also share it on our website, so please take a look!

Satoshi Hirose (Artist)

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.
