Jon Sasaki: We First Need A Boat For The Rising Tide To Lift Us

September 28 - November 17

September 28 – November 17
Opening Reception: September 28, 7pm-9pm
Jon Sasaki: We First Need A Boat For The Rising Tide To Lift Us
Richmond Art Gallery
7700 Minoru Gate
Curator: Shaun Dacey
Waist deep in water and equipped with only rudimentary material and tools, Sasaki attempts to build a functioning boat that would allow him to extricate himself and paddle to shore. As boat building in the water presents far more challenges that boat building on dry land there is always a strong possibility the performance will end in failure.
Channeling an absurd romantic hero who finds himself nearly engulfed in nature, the artist relies on his ability to problem solve as complications arise, an improvise solutions in the moment. Performed in Steveston, the home of his pre-internment Japanese-Canadian family, this new iteration of a past work takes on added dimensions. Documentation of the performance and ephemera of the performance will be included in the exhibition.
