Enter a wonderland of airy horses, birds, and sea creatures appearing to fly, swim, run and swirl. Sayaka Kajita Ganz creates sculptures from reclaimed plastic objects, arranging the fragments of waste into fluid images of birds and animals that appear to be created from brush strokes. The artist states, “My work is about perceiving harmony, even in situations that appear chaotic from the inside,” and notes that her work is inspired by “Shinto animist belief that all things in the world have spirits.”

Across subSaharan Africa, artists working across a range of states, societies, and cultures deliberately created artwork that violated conceptions of beauty, symmetry, and grace—both ours and theirs.
