Sarah Sze: De nuit en jour / Night into Day




ISBN: 9782869251496 Category:

Leanne Sacramone


On the twentieth anniversary of her first solo show at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, American sculptor Sarah Sze presents two new sculptural installations in the gallery spaces of Jean Nouvel’s iconic building. Commissioned by the Fondation Cartier, these works explore how the proliferation of images – printed in magazines, gleaned from the Web, intercepted from outer space – fundamentally changes our relation to physical objects, memories, and time.

On the occasion of the exhibition, the Fondation Cartier is publishing this richly illustrated catalogue, which includes sketches by the artists and exhibition views, retracing the creation of these sculptures. An essay by philosopher and sociologist Bruno Latour, a conversation between Sarah Sze and Jean Nouvel, and a text by the exhibition curator offers a deeper understanding of these two works as well as of the creative process of the artist and the references that are omnipresent in her work.

Born in 1969 in Boston, Sarah Sze gleans objects and images from worlds both physical and digital, collaging them into complex multimedia works that shift scale between microscopic observation and macroscopic perspective on the infinite. Including proliferating media such as sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking, video, and installation, her body of work grapples with matters of entropy and temporality, and addresses the precarious nature of materiality. Sze has held numerous solo exhibitions worldwide and represented the United States at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013. Bruno Latour is a French philosopher and sociologist. Jean Nouvel is a distinguished French architect. Leanne Sacramone is an exhibition curator at the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain.
