Living with nature in an urbanised world

In this talk, Satoko Lee (née Sukenari) reflects on our urbanised, relationship with nature. She explores the complex intertwinings which bind these two world together on levels both subtle and apparent.

By way of illustration, Satoko Lee will also be speaking about grassroots-level activities in the Tokyo neighbourhoods of Kodaira, in an effort to comply with the Ramsar Convention in the preservation of the banks of the Tamagawa River.

About Satoko Lee

Satoko Lee graduated from Musashino University who originally specialised in sculpture. Satoko Lee’s unconventional, Tokyo-based practice now centres on her role in early-childhood art education. Her ‘turn to nature’ can largely be traced to a sculpture symposium in India in 1989, during which her hunt for practitioners of traditional bronze casting brought her to question urban lifestyles in contrast to the simple living of village life.
