Aki Sasamoto

Assistant Professor in Sculpture

Aki Sasamoto works in sculpture, performance, dance and whatever other medium it takes to get her ideas across. In her installation/performance works, Sasamoto moves and talks inside the careful arrangements of sculpturally altered objects to activate the bizarre emotions behind daily life. Her works appear in gallery spaces, theater spaces, and in odd sites. These works have been shown at the Kitchen, Chocolate Factory Theater, Soloway, Whitney Biennial 2010 at Whitney Museum of Art, Greater New York 2010 at MOMA-PS1, New York; Mori Museum, Take Ninagawa, Yokohama Triennale 2008, Japan; Gwangju Biennial 2012, South Korea; and numerous other international and domestic venues. She has collaborated with visual artists, musicians, choreographers, mathematicians, and scholars. Aki likes food.
