Aki Sasamoto is a Japanese artist who was born in 1980 and works in the fields of sculpture, performance, and installation. She is considered an important figure in the ultra-contemporary movement, which seeks to challenge traditional notions of art-making and explore the intersection of performance, technology, and everyday life. She often uses her own body as a medium to explore topics such as labor, identity, and gender. Her works often incorporate everyday objects, such as kitchen utensils, and take the form of whimsical yet poignant performances. Sasamoto has exhibited at numerous international venues, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo.
