Kato Izumi, Untitled, 2020-ongoing

Untitled by Kato Izumi

Kato Izumi is a renowned painter based in both Tokyo and Hong Kong. Born and raised in a rural area in Shimane prefecture in Japan, young Kato’s playground was always surrounded by rich nature. This experience from his childhood instilled in him the idea that humans are a part of nature. When he was invited by CHAT for the Spring Programme in 2020, he made an installation of 5 figures with painted stone heads and bodies from living plants in collaboration with local farmers. Whilst the stones remain unchanged, the living plants will continue to grow, altering the shape of the figures’ bodies. This installation resulted in his rst art piece embracing the changes of nature.

To commemorate the collaboration between Kato, CHAT and Hong Kong farmers, this piece will be updated with different kinds of plants and will be kept as art for those who love both art and nature.

This work was made in collaboration with the artist, CHAT and Hong Kong farmers.
