The “Giri Ten”
Hey there! Jin Katagiri here.
I’m an actor and comedian but also work as an artist creating pieces for my “Absurdity Clay Art Exhibit.”
Have you ever heard of “Absurdity Art?” You haven’t?! Well, I’ll tell you.
Absurdity Art is “original art by Jin Katagiri in which clay is added to everyday items,
making them difficult to use but becoming reborn as a surrealist object.”
Things you use every day are transformed into surprising forms!
I hope you stop by to enjoy the “Giri Ten(Giri Exhibit)”.
The “Giri Ten” is an exhibit with pieces which Jin Katagiri produced over 20 years,
using the method of “adding clay to something.” A national tour across Japan took place in 2015,
which over 78,000 visitors attended.
