Izumi Kato attempts to reappraise human existence by placing humans in the middle of natural scenes. His work follows a belief that the souls and physical bodies of modern man reveals a primitive scenery within, and is continually working to push that scenery out into the world. As such, Kato’s sculptures and paintings “run wild” creating full environments in their full scale installations.

Izumi Kato “The View from Afar” is on view at Comme des Garçons Paris through September 11, 2011.

Installation views follow.
