Aki Sasamoto, Assistant Professor

Aki Sasamoto works in sculpture, performance, and whatever more medium that takes to get her ideas across. In her installation/performance works, Aki moves and talks inside the careful arrangements of sculpturally altered objects, activating bizarre emotions behind daily life. Her works appear in gallery spaces, theater spaces, as well as in odd sites. Shown at The Kitchen, SculptureCenter, Chocolate Factory Theater, Whitney Biennial 2010, Greater New York 2010, New York; National Museum of Art-Osaka, Mori Museum, Yokohama Triennale 2008, Japan; Gwangju Biennial 2012, South Korea; Shanghai Biennale 2016, China; Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2016, India; and numerous other international and domestic venues. She has collaborated with musicians, choreographers, mathematicians, and scholars. Aki graduated from United World College of the Atlantic, received a BA in Dance and Studio Art from Wesleyan University, and an MFA in Visual Arts from Columbia University. Aki likes food.
