Izumi Kato

b.1969 Japan

   

Izumi Kato was born in 1969, in Shimane, Japan. He graduated from the Department of Oil Painting at Musashino University in 1992. He now lives and works between Tokyo and Hong Kong. Since 2000’s, Kato has garnered attention as an innovative artist through exhibitions held in Japan and across the world. In 2007, he was invited to the 52nd Venice Biennale International Exhibition, curated by Robert Storr.




Children with disturbing faces, embryos with fully developed limbs or ancestor spirits locked up in bodies with imprecise forms – the creatures summoned by Izumi Kato are as fascinating as they are enigmatic. Their anonymous silhouettes and strange faces with absent features are above all simple forms and strong colours. Their elementary representation, an oval head with two big, fathomlessly deep eyes shows no more than a crudely figured nose and mouth.

Children with disturbing faces, embryos with fully developed limbs or ancestor spirits locked up in bodies with imprecise forms – the creatures summoned by Izumi Kato are as fascinating as they are enigmatic. Their anonymous silhouettes and strange faces with absent features are above all simple forms and strong colours. Their elementary representation, an oval head with two big, fathomlessly deep eyes shows no more than a crudely figured nose and mouth. Bringing to mind primitive arts, their expressions evoke totems and the animist belief that a spiritual force runs through living and mineral worlds alike. The aura that they exude seems to manifest the first movement of life while the intensity of their expression gives us access to a knowledge of man founded less on reason than on intuition. Embodying a primal, universal form of humanity, these magical beings invite viewers to identify themselves as if looking in a mirror.

 

加藤泉

b.1979 Japan



加藤泉1969年生於日本島根縣,1992年畢業於武藏野大學油畫系,現於東京居住及創作,作品曾在日本及世界各地展出,2000年起開始受外界注意,被評為創新藝術家,2007年更參加第五十二屆威尼斯國際藝術展覽。

從1990年代末至今,加藤泉一直致力追求衍變的藝術語言。他以繪畫為起點,分別在2003年及2012年把樟木雕塑和軟塑膠雕塑納入到創作實踐中。加藤泉的作品特徵鮮明——人像輪廓普適,時而雌雄同體,四肢纖長,姿態詭譎。這些彷彿源自異世界的人像,皆由藝術家用手指將油畫顏料塗抹在畫布上而來。

 

加藤泉的新世界都是由主題加上背景組成,人像都是大頭瘦身,活像變種外星兒童,或未經進化的原始生物。這些抽象主題令人感受到原始人性,簡樸的表現方式更易引發對於存在感的反思。在人生基本面相與現實豐富多采之間,加藤泉築起一道心理橋樑,深深打動觀者。他的人像沒有多餘枝節,無表情無性別,但其粗獷原始的能量,足以令觀者直視那動人的空白面貌。


加藤泉的石雕系列始於2016年,而最新的織物系列則受到了紅磚美術館的建築空間的啟發,根據展覽空間定製而成,旨在描述自我、他人和自然之間的密切聯繫。

 

自2000年代起,加藤泉藉其不斷創新的作品在日本和世界各地的展覽中贏得了廣泛關注。 2007年,他受邀參加了由羅伯特·斯托爾策展的第52屆威尼斯雙年展。加藤泉的作品已在眾多國際知名博物館和機構展陳,包括法國梅斯蓬皮杜中心、日本金澤21世紀美術館、日本東京原美術館、日本東京都現代美術館、日本東京國立近代美術館、日本大阪國立國際美術館、德國柏林戴姆勒當代藝術收藏、俄羅斯莫斯科現代美術館、以色列海法美術館、美國紐約日本協會、香港大館、紅磚美術館(北京)等。
