poster for Kanako Sasaki Exhibition

This event has ended.

Kanako Sasaki makes herself the subject of her work in a series of self-portraits forcing observers to imagine a story for each piece through projects like putting herself in places where historical events (incidents) had actually occurred to express such things as historical fact as her own reality. By “experiencing” and “sensing,” her photographic and video works invoke such things as memories of places, memories of people and history.
Her exhibition this time will be based on the motif of the Okinawa Village in Bolivia, where she will use video footage to express the historical facts of such events as war and immigration, not as happenings from a distantly remote past, but as a story of the “now” that is close to us.
