Chaco Kato

Chaco Kato works interdisciplinary across sculpture, drawing, installation, and community-based projects. Collaboration and negotiation are crucial tenets of her work, with collective actions and communal discourse often performing as the primary source.

Kato's projects are often catalysed by simple impulses and frameworks, including reciprocity, negotiation and craft practices. Informed by the spirit of ‘zen punk’, the aesthetics of bricolage and 'rhizomatic' philosophy, Kato is drawn to working with elements of chaos and order. Kato is also the founder of Slow Art Collective with Dylan Martorell, which focuses on sustainability, collaboration and community by deploying DIY survivalist aesthetics.
