New Video: Aki Sasamoto Grapples with Control and Chaos

In a new film from our New York Close Up series, sculptor and performance artist Aki Sasamoto grapples with the tension between control and chaos—both in life and in her artistic practice. Mirroring its subject’s own playful and absurdist sensibility, this portrait of the artist is a fluid hybrid of fiction and documentary—at once a magical realist world of spinning objects and a psychological exploration of fundamental questions about artistic creativity.

This is the third in a series of six new Art21 films premiering throughout Fall 2019.
