About this title


Architecture and the city are at the heart of Sarah Sze's work. In both the materials she uses and the forms she constructs, her installations are a dizzying metaphor for the urban fabric's shifting and improvised nature. Her flowing structures consist of a litany of small-scale household items--for the most part relics discarded by industrial civilization, or modest, domestic objects such as brushes, screws, and toothpicks--that respond to and infiltrate the surrounding architecture. The interplay between individual components and overall structure allows Sze to explore the boundaries between art and everyday life. She offers us a world where neither emptiness nor saturation dominates, where chaos is as relevant as order, and where the common is as important as the extraordinary. Sze's highly inventive and mature output has aroused enormous inter-national interest. Here, for the first time, is an entire record of Sze's extraordinary body of work since her first highly acclaimed show in New York in 1996. Distributed on behalf of the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain. 80 color illustrations.

About the Author:

Sarah Sze, born in Boston in 1969, has had solo exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; and the Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain, Paris. Her work was also included in Manifesta 2, the 1999 Venice Biennale, and the 2000 Whitney Biennial.
