Wrapping up its sixth iteration this year, the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale, the largest art gallery in the world located across 200 villages in 190,000 acres of the mountains in Niigata, Japan, showcased works from more than 160 artists from across the globe. This year’s installation theme, humans are a part of nature, featured works which implemented nature as a backdrop with which spectators could interact.
