Godai Sahara (b. 1979 Matsumoto, Japan) lives and works in Glasgow and Tokyo.
Sahara makes wine from rainwater. Rainwine tastes simple, made from plain ingredients, almost like rainwater with a subtle hint of alcohol. It varies depending on the location of rain collection. Sometimes it’s pure and clear, sometimes it’s filthy leaving unidentifiable flavour.

Can art be a vehicle for alchemy and magic? The seven artists behind Ascending Delight pose this question, bringing together diverse ideas about exchanges in contemporary culture as our world becomes ever more digitised and connected at the price of a diminished sense of place and security.
The works aim to find a way to navigate this increasingly linked, yet dissociative culture. A coinciding project at The Laurieston Bar sees a photo-based publication on display alongside the pub’s customer photo albums.
