About the exhibitions:

Cave to Dream brings together speculative fiction, experimental cinema, ritual, magic, and live-performance storytelling. Mochizuki’s distinctive handwork is evident in the spirited and tender ink and wash drawings that form the animated imagery in the films. Small-scale theatrical sets, masks and porcelain game pieces crafted by the artist for the performance expand her aesthetic expression into three-dimensional space.

We First Need a Boat for the Rising Tide to Lift Us  channels an absurd romantic hero who finds himself nearly engulfed in nature. Sasaki relies on his ability to problem solve as complications arise and to improvise solutions in the moment. Performed in Steveston, the home of his pre-internment Japanese-Canadian family, this new iteration of a past work takes on added dimensions. Documentation of the performance and ephemera of the performance will be included in the exhibition.
