Although Sasaki’s art is difficult to define, the rhythm of the seasons is a recurrent source of inspiration. The fact that Sasaki bases his art on the uniqueness of the plant and not on a preconceived concept also explains the particular diversity of his compositions, which are sometimes simple but can also appear extremely delicate. This splendid monograph is the first retrospective work of this young, talented artist and will certainly convince those who were still in doubt of Naoki Sasaki’s extraordinary gift.
From 5 May to 16 September 2018, Bruges will form the backdrop to the second edition of the Triennial, an art trail in the heart of the historic city. With the theme Liquid City, the Triennial aims to investigate the role of a city like Bruges in a globalised and changing world. With their artistic and architectural installations, the participants in Triennial Bruges 2018 | Liquid City create welcoming public spaces in the city centre. These temporary interventions at less well-known and iconic places in the historic cityscape offer opportunities for wonder, encounter and dialogue.
