Japan born artist Sayaka Ganz is driven by fitting strange objects together into amazingly fluid sculptures… which is good because she says she has a “strange sympathy for discarded objects.” In the Shinto beliefs of Japan all objects are seen as having inner spirits and preschoolers are often told that items discarded before their time weep in the trash can. Her fantastic works bring out that spirit in animals created of old plastic spoons, colanders and other kitchen utensils… not what you’d expect for building sculptures that look almost alive.
