ABOUT This Year’s Anti-Glassworks Installation
-What is the inspiration for this year’s Anti-Glassworks?

“This year’s Anti-Glassworks are deeply influenced by the United States presidential election. We are probably going to experience a historical moment as we will most likely have the first female president of the United States.
I am sensitive to the social movements of other nations, including the United States,  just like I care for my own country. I see the social movements as a citizen of the world, and with this perspective I create my work as responses to society. The urge naturally came to me to express my interest in and feelings for the US presidential election as the theme of this year’s Anti-Glassworks installation that will be presented at AG Gallery.

In my installation, Mr. Donald Trump is portrayed as a house of cards. He is a charming person, but there are dangerous sides in his policy. The Trump tower is standing on the verge of collapse. The glass objects around it encourage the tower’s self-control. I will leave the rest to your imagination and understanding.

Although I do not have a vote in the election, the result will affect us and the world.
This exhibition is my deep cheering message that I send towards both candidates.” -Takao Sakata
