Takako Saitō

Takako Saitō (Fukui Prefecture, JP, 1929)
Takako Saito is a Japanese artist closely associated with Fluxus who contributed a number of performances and artworks to the movement. She worked closely to Ay-O, an artist actively engaged in encouraging avant-garde groups in Japan. It was through Ay-O that she was introduced to George Maciunas, founder and organizer of Fluxus, and one of the central members of the New York avant-garde. Saito remained part of the Fluxus movement throughout the 1960s and 1970s, producing multi-media, installation and sculptural work in collaboration with other artists such as Robert Filliou, George Brecht, Dorothy Iannone, Gerhard Rühm, Ben Vautier, Dick Higgins and Bob Watts.
