Kei Ito is an interdisciplinary artist working primarily with camera-less images and installation art. Ito’s work addresses issues of deep intergenerational loss and connections as he explores the materiality and experimental processes of photography.
His work, rooted in the trauma and legacy passed down from his late grandfather - a survivor of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, meditates on the complexity of his identity and heritage through examining the past and current threats of nuclear disaster and his present status as an immigrant. Thus, Ito’s ritualistic image-making serves as an intermediary, a memento of his grandfather, and his own history in today’s nuclear climate.
Ito has participated in numbers of prestige Artist in Residence programs offered by, MASS MoCA, the Marva and John Warnock Biennial A-I-R at University of Utah, Center for Photography at Woodstock and Creative Alliance. His works are included in the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Norton Museum of Art, the Marva & John Warnock A-I-R Committee, En Foco, California Institute of Integral Studies and CPW. His internationally recognized solo and group shows can be read in reviews and articles published by Washington Post, Hyperallergic, BmoreArt, ArtMaze Magazine, Washington City Paper and BBC Culture/Art.
