Tetsumi Kudo art & style
A leading light of the ‘Anti-Art’ movement in Tokyo in the 1950s, Tetsumi Kudo produced sculptures, installations and performance-based work which was unafraid to express his disillusionment with Japan's progress-obsessed culture. Kudo highlighsts the brutality of consumer society in the post-nuclear age and criticizes blind faith in technological advancement.
Hauser & Wirth London exhibition
This show presents work from Kudo’s renowned ‘Cube’ and ‘Dome’ series - but prepare to be blown away by the centrepiece. The seminal ‘Garden of the Metamorphosis in the Space Capsule’ is an enlarged three-dimensional die, with a small circular door allowing the viewer to climb into a dark UV-lit interior. But we'll leave it to you to discover what lies inside.
