SculptureCenter is pleased to present Aki Sasamoto's first solo exhibition in a U.S. museum. Working at the intersection of performance and sculpture, Sasamoto creates object scenarios out of narratives and actions. For her exhibition in SculptureCenter's lower level galleries, Sasamoto will create a new body of work in relation to the site. 
The dung beetle resourcefully rolls its home and food into one mobile unit, an activity that operates as a starting point for Sasamoto's exhibition. Featuring new sculptural units that similarly roll through the space, once activated by Sasamoto these units become rotating sites that explore neuroses around cleanliness and filth. Rotation reappears in an installation of washing and drying machines modified and periodically used by the artist in her performances. The exhibition also includes a new video and other sculptures that touch on "base" elements and repression. 
A cycle of performances articulating the stream of consciousness and associations between the various elements—such as the washing machines, bed sheets, and mobile units—that Sasamoto has incorporated in her sculptures is scheduled for the following dates: 
Sunday, September 18, 4:30: SOLD OUT
Saturday, September 24, 3pm: SOLD OUT
Saturday, October 8, 3pm: SOLD OUT
Saturday, October 22, 3pm: SOLD OUT
Saturday, November 19, 3pm: SOLD OUT
Saturday, December 17, 3pm: SOLD OUT
