At the VOLTA10 Art Fair in Basel (2014) the Tezukayama Gallery of Osaka presented japanese tea ceremonies in a steel-made tea room with all utensils created in metal in:
Tomohiro Kato's installation "TETTEI"
The most important thing about my work is that it is steel. We are under illusions that information like data and numbers fly around so fast and the world is covered by them. I feel a notion that material is becoming less important. Painting metal on metal is like mixing up the existence and reality of steel as material and the symbolism and imagination of two dimensional images. I think this twisted feeling awakens us and makes us rethink about the material 'steel', which is responsible for the world's industrial development.
