Atsunobu Katagiri Japanese plant artist who lives and works in Osaka, Japan. In his work he employs various plants from small wild grasses to large trees such as cherry trees. He is known for his contemporary approach to the use of plants and flowers, which can be seen in many of his works, such as in the project “Sacrifice”, a result of his experience as a guest artist for the “Hama- dori, Naka-dori, & Aizu Tri-Regional Culture Collaboration Project” organized by the Japanese government’s Cultural Affairs Agency. At the time, he resided in the town of Minamisoma in Fukushima Prefecture, and was struck by the haunting emptiness of the landscapes and the destroyed houses, but also noticed there the growth of weeds, fields of wild flowers, and gardens that had overgrown property. Despite his conflicting emotions, the resurgence of nature calmed him, and he began to collect flowers and produce arrangements and installations amidst the ruins, in an attitude of “regenerating the voices of the earth.” Katagiri understands the fragility of flowers and human life as similar, and his work shows that after two years of forced social distancing, contact with nature is increasingly necessary.
