Saya Woolfalk

Saya Woolfalk

American, born Japan, 1979

The New York-based artist Saya Woolfalk (she/her/hers) uses science fiction and fantasy to re-imagine the world in multiple dimensions. Her videos, sculptures, and immersive environments have given life to the world of the Empathics, a fictional race of women who are able to alter their genetic make-up and fuse with plants. Recently, Woolfalk’s work has been in the group exhibition Born in Flames: Feminist Futures at the The Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York, NY (2021) and in the solo show Expedition to the ChimaCloud at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, MO (2019).
