The work by Tetsumi Kudo is archetypal – an aquarium, buckets, cages – and is accompanied by works on paper and a rare translation painting by computer.

From the mid-1960s until the end of the 1970s, Kudo suggested that pollution, technology, and humanity had become a symbiotic whole. Each affected the other in what had become an intertwined ‘new ecology.’ Kudo conceived his work as models or maquettes of these realities.

The project here underlines how the artist explored the existential possibilities for humanity in an increasingly polluted and consumption-driven world – issues critical to the cultural and political debates today in the catastrophic era of the Anthropocene.
