Rui Sasaki is an Artist in Residence at S12 during April & May. She is a Japanese conceptual artist mainly using transparent materials such as glass and ice in her work. In S12 she will be investigating the weather – including the rain, local plants, architecture and space – empty spaces, intimate spaces, abandoned spaces.
During the first part of her stay, she will be creating new works and showing them as they come to being – be they ready or not. She will be inviting the visitor to come close and to follow the process of creating new works, to the experimentation with the material and its form. The visitor will be invited to follow her till the end, or until the official opening of her processed based exhibition/installation PLUVIOPHILE on the 20th of May. The opening will mark the second phase of her stay in S12.
This is the second time S12 presents works by Rui Sasaki, the first time was during the exhibition Young & Loving! in 2013.
