Sarah Sze (born 1969) has earned deserved acclaim since the late 1990s for her intricate assemblages of everyday consumer products, painstakingly arranged by hand into immense, site-specific installations that engage the viewer in a dizzying play of perspective and scale. Often every crevice of an architectural space is utilized in her complex constructions, composed of thousands of objects, works that converge at the intersection of drawing, sculpture and architecture. Sarah Sze: Triple Point is a major new publication on the work of this celebrated artist, documenting Sze's ambitious, large-scale exhibition at the U.S. Pavilion of the 2013 Venice Biennale, with 64 pages of full-color plates and several significant new texts on Sze and her practice. Included is a conversation between the artist and Pulitzer Prize winning author Jennifer Egan, along with a short story by Egan entitled «Black Box.» Curator and scholar Johanna Burton contributes a compelling new examination of Sze's practice, and 2013 Biennale Co-Commissioners Holly Block and Carey Lovelace provide an introduction to the project and artist. Elegantly realized by award-winning designer Takaaki Matsumoto, Sarah Sze: Triple Point is certain to be a lasting testament to the continued development of this exciting and original artist.
For over 20 years Sarah Sze (born 1969) has produced celebrated works of art, synthesizing a near boundless range of everyday materials into intricate constructions that are both delicate and overwhelming. Sze's latest site-specific installation at the Rose Art Museum, Timekeeper, combines sculpture, video and installation into a sprawling experiential work that approaches some of the most complex themes of her career: time's passage and its marking in mechanical and biological forms.
The Timekeeper installation was a catalyst for a book which explores major new ideas in Sze's work and practice. The ambitious work is extensively documented here alongside significant new texts on Sze, her work and the experience of time.
Sarah Sze inhabits architectural spaces with a spider-like thoroughness and ingenuity, weaving fragile webs of glue threads and matchsticks around junctures of commercially-bought ephemera: Q-tips, plastic flowers, beads and baskets, paper goods, and mini-video projectors. She infiltrates every crevice and corner and explodes off of walls with a construction always spontaneously, intuitively responsive to its given environment. This catalogue documents and contextualizes the recent departure from closed environments that Sze took in creating an outdoor project at Bard College in upstate New York, a move which necessitated a subtle shift to materials which could withstand the elements. Sze has said that the exhibition space becomes a studio during her installations; here, her studio is a meadow. Essays by Elizabeth A.T. Smith, Douglas Rushkoff. Introduction and interview by Amada Cruz. 11 x 9.5 in. 24 color illustrations
Vingt ans après la première exposition qu'elle lui a consacrée, la Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain invite à nouveau l'artiste américaine Sarah Sze à créer une exposition immersive dialoguant avec les espaces transparents du bâtiment de Jean Nouvel. Internationalement reconnue pour son oeuvre défiant les frontières entre peinture, installation et architecture, Sarah Sze assemble des objets du quotidien et des images en mouvement dans des installations sculpturales d'une étonnante délicatesse et complexité. Présentant de nombreuses vues de l'exposition, le catalogue publié par la Fondation Cartier retrace la création des deux oeuvres conçues spécialement par Sarah Sze pour l'exposition, composées d'objets, de lumières, de sons, de vidéos et d'images fixes. Un texte de Bruno Latour, une conversation entre Jean Nouvel et Sarah Sze ainsi qu'un texte de la commissaire de l'exposition explorent les références qui se trouvent au coeur du travail de l'artiste et analysent sa préoccupation pour la prolifération des images qui transforment notre relation aux objets, à l'espace et au temps. L'exposition est présentée du 18 octobre 2020 au 15 mars 2021.
