Tetsumi Kudo

May 31 - August 31
Tetsumi Kudo

The Japanese artist (1935–1990) played a significant role in the avant-garde, critiquing consumerism and political conformity in Japan, as well as contributing to the Nouveau Realisme movement in France. Known for his diverse artistic practice, Kudo delved into the human experience, exploring themes such as mass consumption, technology, colonialism, racism, social cohesion, and environmental degradation. The exhibition showcased a selection of his renowned cage sculptures created between 1966 and 1980. These immersive environments encourage viewers to perceive themselves as integral parts of an interconnected cosmos, where nature, technology, and humanity interact — a concept Kudo referred to as the New Ecology.

The artist’s thought-provoking biomorphic sculptures and assemblages serve as a powerful conduit, connecting the audience to pressing societal issues. By delving into the intricate relationship between humanity and its surroundings, the artworks foster a deep reflection on our interconnectedness within a world that is constantly evolving. They act as a catalyst for contemplating the profound impact of human actions on the environment and society as a whole.
