Jon Sasaki | Something Difficult Done Easily

Jon Sasaki
Something Difficult Done Easily
Toronto, Canada: Nothing Else Press, 2018
8.5 x 29 x 8.5 cm.
Edition of 50 signed and numbered copies

The Nothing Else Press is pleased to announce the launch of a new edition by Toronto artist Jon Sasaki.

Typically, building a model ship in a bottle requires hundreds of hours of patient finicky work, inserting tiny parts individually through the neck of a bottle and cementing them into place.
In this multiple, a model ship has been made from superabsorbent polymer, the same material used for novelty "grow in water" dinosaurs. After pushing it into the bottle and filling it with water, the ship will expand approximately 500% in volume.

The work is available for $75 at the Edition Art Book Fair from Thursday to Sunday. Booth number and other fair information to follow. Or reserve a copy by emailing nothingelsepress@rogers.com.
