What inspires 20 art students to travel from UNSW to Wakayama Japan to walk 60 Km through an ancient forest on a thousand year old pilgrimage trail?
Kumano answers this by reflecting upon the collective and personal journeys experienced whilst walking the trails of Kumano Kodo and Koyasan, to offer new transformative as well as cross-cultural perspectives.
Kumano responds to these students’ deep engagement with the natural environment, spiritual traditions and folklore as well as the people from the local community. Through diverse disciplines and media, their works explore the powerful interconnections between environment, spirituality and community specific to the cultural and historical context of Kumano Kodo and Koyasan.
