Jon Sasaki’s multidisciplinary practice brings performance, video, object and installation into a framework where expectation and outcome rarely align. Often charting territory between logic and absurdity, his work employs ad hoc problem solving and inefficient thought experiments in a search for useful models. Sasaki holds a BFA from Mount Allison University, and has held solo exhibitions at the Ottawa Art Gallery; the Southern Alberta Art Gallery; the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. Recent group exhibitions include the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Seoul); the Bentway (Toronto); the Canadian Embassy in Japan (Tokyo) and MOCA (Toronto). He was the recipient of the 2015 Canadian Glenfiddich Artists in Residence Prize.
