With a background in architecture and environmental design, Tokyo-based artist Tetsuro Kano is primarily interested in expanding human perception of the world through the observation of plants and animals. In his New Plants assemblages, Kano attempts to incorporate non-human perceptions of the world by employing ready-made and found materials in a way that reflects the perspective of the plants and birds he has carefully observed. His commitment to presenting a plurality of organic perspectives in his work results in uses for materials that deviate from the objects’ ascribed social and economic purpose. Kano recently participated in the 2017 End of Summer residency program in Portland, Oregon and has held solo exhibitions at the Bloomberg Pavilion Project Museum of Contemporary Art (Tokyo), Hara Museum of Art (Gunma) and Shiseido Gallery (Tokyo).
