The Whitney Highlights Aki Sasamoto

Monday, January 25, 2010 - 03:33 PM

Performance artist Aki Sasamoto lives in Brooklyn, but when she was a child in Tokyo, she had a recurring dream that she was a strawberry who ate herself and then traveled down her own digestive track.

This haunting dream and the questions and concepts it raised continue to inform her art, including her forthcoming performance piece for the Biennial. Her performance at the Biennial will take place over several days during which she will perform alongside her sculptures which incorporate everyday objects. In this short, produced by the Whitney, Donuts, the artist sits in a Brooklyn coffeeshop and talks about tubes and dreams.
