Yoko Mori (Ed.)
Inspired by her encounters with landscapes, myths, and decorative traditions, Japanese artist Ai Sasaki creates immersive mural installations out of white sugar. Her stunning and intricate sugar drawings and a selection of vivid color studies are presented in this handsome publication produced in conjunction with the exhibition Ai Sasaki: Four Songs. Sasaki builds dreamlike images with a remarkable transparency—a fusion of local landscapes and ancient fragments. Trees shrouded in mist, a ship returning to the forest, migrating birds all invoke a sense of forgotten memories. This book is the first—one hopes of many—to record her iconic works of the past decade as Sasaki has moved from artist residencies throughout Japan and abroad, at each location leaving her massive white murals behind. Features a uniquely printed white cover to recreate the essence of the works—along with essays by poet Keijiro Suga, art critic Midori Matsui and notes by the artist.
