Born in Japan, Eri–Kato had many shows Tokyo, Kanagawa, Tamanashi,Berlin Germany London and more. True to her heritage Eri–Kato uses manly paper , paper folding and cuts as well as cardboard material and wood in her sculptures.
In a country that is susceptible to many earth cracks the use of light materials that are also biodegradable like paper is part of its culture. The artist takes us to a tour inside the cardboard material where we can explore the dimension, the texture and the light from various angles through cutting, twisting, tearing and taking apart, the cardboard reveals hidden sides that are out of sight and giving a glance to empty spaces.
In her “Drawings” the artist is using sweets packaging boxes that are folded, changing to an unusual forms in an artistic play.
