SculptureCenter is pleased to present Aki Sasamoto’s first solo exhibition in a U.S. museum. Working at the intersection of performance and sculpture, Sasamoto creates object scenarios out of narratives and actions. For her exhibition in SculptureCenter’s lower level galleries, Sasamoto will create a new body of work in relation to the site. Sasamoto was born in Japan in 1980 and lives and works in New York.
Aki Sasamoto (born 1980 in Kanagawa, Japan. Lives and works in New York) has been included in group exhibitions such as Roppongi Crossing 2013: Out of Doubt at the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, Japan (2013); A Spoken Word Exhibition at Jeu de Paume, Paris, France (2013); A LIKENESS HAS BLISTERS at CCS Bard Hessel Museum, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY (2012); and the 2010 Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Recent performances include Sunny in the Furnace at The Kitchen, New York (2014) and We Live With Animals for Performa 13, New York (2013).
The exhibition is curated by SculptureCenter Curator Ruba Katrib and will be accompanied by a fully illustrated publication.
