Take Ninagawa is pleased to announce Aki Sasamoto’s participation in the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, “The Milk of Dreams,” curated by Cecilia Alemani, director and chief curator of High Line Art, New York.

Sasamoto is exhibiting the newly commissioned performance/installation Sink or Float (2022), on view at the Giardino delle Vergini as part of the main exhibition. Sink or Float questions the nuances of everyday life, channeling queries about topics ranging from cravings and laundry to garbage, cleaning, and romance through absurdist scenarios, deadpan humor, and a stream of consciousness logic. Sasamoto’s constructed environment employs controlled chaos to transform the everyday into the fantastical, inviting the viewer to retune their perceptions of the seemingly mundane in everyday life.
