Chika Kato "Between"
This event has ended.
Kato is an innovative video artist who is involved in domestic video art exhibitions and overseas art projects. This is the artist’s first solo show at a commercial art space.
This artist has taken a keen interest in experimental arts projects related to moving images since receiving her BA in Fine Arts at Tokyo National University of Fine Arts & Music in 2002. She has participated in the Nomad Theater Series at BankART in Yokohama, Japan, and Move on Asia at Gallery Loop in Seoul, Korea. This artist's work is a deliberate juxtaposition of moving images with related still photographs. The audience is forced to get into the installation space abruptly, and as a result the viewer is a part of the work at the same time. This unique installation style is exceptional among current conventional video art, and is very outstanding at this point in her career. For this exhibition, she uses video to create tranquil visual sensations of the innermost depth from an imaginary space between the surface of our perceptible and factual world, and the metaphysical inner world. Flickering light and sound, with a flux of time, are lyrical, and eloquent enough to give the viewers rumination on ideas of time and movement. These moving images are animated by her suggestions of the ephemeral nature and their fleeting reality. This artist focuses on making visible a realm of our imagination, thus allowing us to travel a territory which other art methods can never reach. Three or four distinct video works with still photos will be presented at the gallery.
