Following exhibitions in Hong Kong, Paris and New York, Perrotin is delighted to present Izumi Kato’s first solo exhibition in Seoul, which further builds upon the Japanese artist’s recent experiments exploring stone as a new medium. Since the late 1990s, Kato has been creating an evolving dialogue. With painting as a departure point, the artist began to incorporate wood sculptures in 2003 and soft vinyl sculptures in 2012 into his art practice. Kato’s signature forms, reminiscent of his childhood drawings, include anonymous silhouettes and sometimes androgynous creatures with elongated limbs in impossible poses. These are the results of the artist’s mastery of technique, using his hands to directly apply pigment to canvas to create his otherworldly, anthropomorphized works.


New York Gallery Reopening

Perrotin New York will reopen with limited capacity beginning on Thursday, July 9. We remain open Tuesday through Sunday from 10am - 6pm and for select appointments on Mondays. Reservations are preferred, and can be made by phone, email (bookingny@perrotin.com), or through the See Saw app. 

The well-being of our community is our priority, and we have implemented strict precautionary measures for both our staff and visitors by: limiting capacity and carefully monitoring flow throughout the gallery, requiring all visitors and staff to wear a mask, providing touch-free hand sanitizer on each floor, retro-fitting all desks with plexiglass screens, making exhibition leaflets accessible via QR code, conducting routine cleanings of all surfaces, and implementing an RSVP system in the event that we need to assist public health officials with contact tracing.
