OPEN LECTURE: AKI SASAMOTO
On Monday the 9th of October at 1PM an open lecture by Aki Sasamoto will be held at the department of fine art, Laugarnesvegur 91.
While her works are commonly composed of everyday household items—trashcans, garbage bags, chests of drawers, mops, chairs, or shoes, to name a few—she reveals new meanings through their juxtaposition, alteration, and use. Distinctly absurd and drily humorous, Sasamoto’s performances and installations derail commonplace realities askew and propose alternative scenarios for relationships between cause and effect.
Sasamoto is one of the artists participating in Sequences – Real Time Art Festival this year. Sequences VIII, Elastic Hours is curated by Margot Norton curator at the New Museum, New York. The festival will take place from October 6th -15th in Reykjavík.
Note! Sasamoto will be performing at the Reykjavík Art Museum, Hafnarhús on October 6th at 4pm and October 9th at 4.30 pm.
The lecture will be held in English and is open to the public.
