Aki Sasamoto works in sculpture, performance, dance, and any other medium that gets her ideas across. In her installation/performance works, Aki moves and talks inside the careful arrangements of sculpturaly altered objects, activating bizarre emotions behind daily life. Her works appear in gallery spaces, theater spaces, as well as odd, alternative sites. Sasamoto has shown her work at the Sculpture Center, the Kitchen, the High Line, Chocolate Factory Theater, Whitney Biennial 2010 at Whitney Museum, Greater New York 2010 at MOMA-PS1, New York; Shanghai Biennale 2016, China; 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.
