Chaco Kato’s art practice exists as suite of encounters with new spatial situations, new social contexts and new materials and processes.

‘Our Small Terrain’ explores Kato’s ongoing interest in the question: What is waste? She explores the border between art and non-art, natural and man-made. She investigates where the boundary lies between controlled and uncontrolled.

Kato’s practice attends to ongoing processes as part of the generative system of organisms and human life, where everything exists in a state of impermanency and flux. Kato narrates this through the process of collecting pips and pulp, plants, mycelium and roots, along with weaving and making paper by hand.

Kato explores the ecology of the organic cycle, birth to death and rebirth. She seeks to portray the simultaneous fragility and strength of life and the unstable relationship between the natural world and humanity.
