WAS Artist of the Week…

Sayaka Ganz: Sculptor, Fort Wayne, IN

Sayaka’s working process is reminiscent of her experiences growing up in several different countries, of being disconnected from the place she was born. She finds discarded objects from peoples’ houses and gives them a second life, a new home. For her sculptures she uses plastic utensils, toys and metal pieces among other things. She only selects objects that have been used and discarded. The human history behind these objects gives them life in her eyes.

Her goal is for each object to transcend its origins by being integrated into an animal form that seems alive. This process of reclamation and regeneration is liberates Sayaka, as an artist.
