Blind by Masakatsu Sashie
by sabine7 / November 7, 2013


Japanese artist Masakatsu Sashie currently has a solo exhibition called Coacervate at Jonathan LeVine Gallery. The gallery provides the following description of the work, which "revolves around the belief that the coacervate is a universal model and basis for all systems and organisms, simple and complex. The term coacervate--from Latin "to assemble together or cluster"--is defined as a microscopic droplet of assorted organic lipid molecules held together by hydrophobic forces in a surrounding liquid. ... Sashie's coacervates are often depicted as orb-shaped amalgams of manmade objects suspended over cityscapes. The works in this exhibition feature landscapes that resemble landfills--comprised of towering piles of glowing televisions, vending machines, vehicles and other industrially manufactured products."
