Hazuki Katagai

Fascinated by the mysterious connection between the physical and psychological, award-winning Japanese artist Hazuki Katagai asks: what would happen if we were to “wear” our feelings?

Accessories for Wearing Emotions is a series of 21 functional devices which explores the definition and nature of internal emotions, what Katagai describes as “the complex functionality of being human.”

She believes her works “connect people through shared experiences that are possible thanks to the fact that people can really use them. I create the work to facilitate communication and mutual understanding.”
