Jon Sasaki

Good Intentions

Scarborough, ON: Doris McCarthy Gallery, 2011

[82 pp.], 29 x 22 x 1.5 cm., hardcover


“Utilizing video, objects, performance and installation, Jon Sasaki takes cynicism, futility and tragedy as starting points, countering the thematic heaviness with dry, comic delivery. Through a multitude of scenarios where heroic attempts often result in failure, Sasaki's work evokes the tradition of slapstick cinema and Sasaki himself the figure of Buster Keaton or Charlie Chaplin. With full-color illustrations and three critical essays this first monograph looks at themes of failure, pathos, comedy/tragedy and risk as found in Sasaki's romantic conceptual works.”
