This event has ended.

Tsubasa Kato (1984-) is famous for his “Pull and Raise” series, in which people pool their knowledge and use only their physical strength and ropes to pull down or erect giant structures.
He has also produced many works full of sharp criticism for contemporary society, including “Woodstock 2017” (2017), in which four white men roped together play the American national
anthem, and “Underground Orchestra” (2018), which turns attention to animals displaced by construction work on an oil pipeline across the Standing Rock Sioux Tribeʼs reservation.

At a time when local communities are facing collapse under threats such as natural disasters, urban development and destruction of the environment, Kato demonstrates the significance of autonomous acts by people who take part and actually do something together. During the Covid-19 pandemic, at a time when there are fears of increasing polarisation of nations and people, his works help us to notice the potential for collaborative action and alliances to overcome division and confrontation.
