Description

The Japanese artist Taro Izumi looks mischievously at the world. He develops unclassifiable multimedia works that take viewers on a journey to the boundaries of reality. Izumi’s wealth of ideas is irrepressible. He designed a parcours for the Museum Tinguely during which viewers will encounter new works, such as a washing machine on a pyramid, robot vacuum cleaners, or people licking the floor. Izumi’s belief in the constant transformation of things is also reflected in the structure of the catalogue, which resembles a loose-leaf binder. Thus, he finds a way to render the unclassifiable quality of his art in another medium.
