Tetsuro Kano was born in Miyagi in 1980. He studied at Tokyo Zokei University, majoring in design (Environmental Design/City Environmental Course) and received MFA at the same university. Through several artist-in-residency programs, he has mainly created site-specific works of installation, drawing and photography. In recent years, Kano has participated in residency programs in Japan and abroad, such as SEOKSU ART PROJECT (Korea), Aomori Contemporary Art Centre[ACAC] (Aomori), and many others.
Installation work “Weeds” which I install seeds in anyplace and wait/watch to growing plants. Photograph series “Studying about something” tries collection of something special scenery. Installation work “Garden prayer” tries representation of collected something, is constructed from found objects, poems, drawings, photographs and uncontrollable elements. Recent installation work is “Naturplan”. The materials that I use for my artworks are those that are found-objects in the nearby place or ready-made staffs. The meanings and the functions of the place and the materials are only known to the people not to the bird or any kinds else. The space or the objects that constructs the landscape are not especially made for the bird. But if the space and objects are combined and made into a new landscape, or should I say a sculpture, the bird which is thrown to the space would react with certain imaginations. The layout objects go beyond meanings or functions of the human being, they might be unusual landscape to human and also they could be drawings in the space itself.
