This autumn, our galleries are transformed into a dazzling psychedelic landscape of cartoon strips writ large by the Japanese artist Hideyuki Katsumata.

About

His magical animations, paintings and prints are programmed to coincide with Discovery Film Festival. USO de HONTOU is the artist’s biggest exhibition to date and his first ever in the UK. The title translates to the enigmatic phrase ‘that’s also unreal,
but it’s also real’.

Katsumata depicts robots, UFOs, dragons and bodies with multiple limbs or eyes in a vivid and engaging exhibition that chimes with both Japanese culture and Dundee’s own comics and video games heritage. USO de HONTOU features a large-scale mural and prints made at DCA. The large gallery features several of Katsumata’s joyous pop videos.
