HÀ NỘI — Art lovers are invited to attend a talk by artist Tsubasa Kato titled Ou-topos Network as part of his Pull and Raise project around the world.

Pulling and raising are two simple acts that seem to support each other but remain contradictory at the same time. They serve as a reminder of order and chaos.

Kato ponders pull and raise as a means of interaction with his audiences. Participants of the event will play a role in his work.

Kato was born in Japan in 1984 and is a Seattle-based contemporary artist. In the ‘Pull and Raise’ project, spontaneously formed groups work together to pull down large-scale structures with ropes. This work challenges us to see each project site’s environment as a narrative, reflected in the shape and the weight of the structure. 

By employing communal action to pull and manipulate this structure, he represents social order in terms of an alterable, physical form, providing a platform for people to spontaneously and unconsciously co-operate to envision change.

The event will take place tomorrow at Puppets Café, No 27, Lane 189, Giảng Võ Street. — VNS
