Aki Sasamoto

Female

b. 1980, Yokohama


In her installation/performance works, Aki Sasamoto moves and talks inside careful arrangements of sculpturally altered objects, activating bizarre emotions that underlie daily life. She has collaborated with visual artists, musicians, choreographers, scientists, and scholars, and is co-founder of the nonprofit Culture Push (New York). Her works appear in galleries, theater, and in odd sites, and have been shown in the Whitney and Gwangju biennales, and in cities including New York, Tokyo and New Delhi. She teaches at Rutgers University and Columbia University. Aki likes food.
