Sapporo Tenjinyama Art Studio International Open Call AIR Program


Every year, two to three contemporary artists are invited through an International Open Call by Sapporo City.

Sapporo City provides an opportunity for overseas-based artists, through the “International AIR Program,” to stay and work for a period of time in Sapporo Tenjinyama Art Studio (“Tenjinyama” for short). The program supports the artists’ pioneering creative activities. Due to the global pandemic in 2020-2021, the overseas artists were unable to physically spend time in Sapporo. However, the two selected artists from the Open Call were able to remotely connect with Tenjinyama. The artists were able to develop creative activities inspired by the new era that everyone all over the world is facing today.

The two artists, Aaron MacLaughlin and Choi Heejung, were able to research, both online and onsite as far as their physical mobility allowed, about Sapporo and Hokkaido to develop their ideas for each project. They were also able to interact with other artists, and received various advice and techniques from collaborators. The project was shaped through the combination of the elements. Artist-in-Residence is like a stepping stone for a jumping box. We hope that this program will make a great leap forward and lead up to future activities for the two invited artists. Please take a look at what they saw, tried to see, and tried to know about Sapporo, Hokkaido and Japan.

The progress of each artist’s project will be widely reported on our website and exhibitions. The following events will be held to relive the artist’s 100 days through their works and experimental presentation. (Admission and participation are free.)

Works exhibited at Sapporo Tenjinyama Art Studio (1F, Japanese-style Room, Exhibition Space)


Aaron Maclaughlin’s exhibition invites us to experience the relationship and situation between the space and items placed in it.  The kindle in the show space quietly changes during the exhibition.


Choi Heejung’s new video work and her drawing diary will be available for viewing.


Screening of Choi Heejung’s video work at Sapporo City Observatory (Sapporo Science Center)


The invited artist, working remotely in Seoul, and an artist in Sapporo were able to collaborate to create this work. ”Let’s see the stars in the middle of the city. It is a small observatory in Nakajima Park.” (Sapporo City Observatory website; https://www.ssc.slp.or.jp/planet/sapporo-obs)

There is a hint in this place.

Screening of Choi Heejung’s video work on the Nishi 6-chome Stage of Odori Park


Choi Heejung’s poetic work that won the hearts of jury members, will be shown at the public screening. She created this new work during the AIR program.  With the Snow Festival being online and different from the past, her work rises up like a mirage in the unusual winter cityscape.
