KAYO SATO is a Japanese artist, born in Fukuoka and professor at University of Kyushu Sangyo at the “Faculty of Fine Art”, Department of Textile Art. Wires, spindles and looms in many patriarchal societies have been used as weapons of women minority discrimination, instead in the hands of the artist, they become redemption symbols of feminine freedoms and creativity. With great care and  manual dexterity, Kayo Sato weaves emotions and perceptions, transforming the warps of soft colored threads in textile sculptor loaded of memories. The creative process is carried out through the slow proceeding, meticulous and ritual of the ancient hand-crafted practice of weaving and is exalted by the refinement of the fibers, the preciousness of colors and artistic sensibility. As from a tangled skein that unraveled on the spindles cause exemplar wefts, Sato untangles the pile of contradictions of the existence and, weaving feelings and personal experiences, goes beyond Dadaist aspiration, turning art into life. In the Kayo Sato’s artworks, the ancient  hand-crafted practice of weaving meets with art: the slow proceeding, meticulous and ritual of this technique is so sublimated by the refinement of the fibers, by the preciousness of colors, which she prepares herself, and by the artistic sensitivity. As the Fates, mythological creatures who presided at the entire course of human life weaving the threads of fate, so the artist intertwines stories of life and personal perceptions, establishing rhythm and length in warps and wefts of soft and colorful wire. In Sato’s artworks, the weaving is as a creative act, in which the artist always find a harmonious combination between inspiration and manual dexterity, Japanese culture and the vibrant colors of the Italian countryside, traditional teachings and innovative personal variations.
