Gavin Stephens and Jon Sasaki: Are We There Yet?
Working in the vein of “romantic conceptualism,” Toronto-based Jon Sasaki utilizes primarily performance-for-video, objects, installations, and interventions in work that mixes humour and pathos, often with gently antagonistic results. Recent solo exhibitions include 126 (Galway, Ireland), Centre Clark (Montreal), Access (Vancouver) and The Doris McCarthy Gallery (a touring exhibition and forthcoming catalogue). Jon was an active member of the Instant Coffee art collective between 2002 and 2007. He is represented by Jessica Bradley Art + Projects.
