‘Jon Sasaki’s Best Friendship’ (2006 – ongoing)

The artist is offering his lifelong best-friendship.
Purchasers of a pendant are asked to break it in two, select either the “BE-FRI” half or the ”ST-END” half for themselves, and leave the other half with a gallery representative. The artist will then collect and wear his component as an official symbol of the newly formalized friendship.
