Sarah Sze: Triple Point / U.S. Pavilion / Venice Art Biennale 2013

The New York-based artist Sarah Sze is known for her complex sculptures and site-specific installations made of everyday objects such as tea bags, water bottles, and electric fans. Her works manipulate the space, be it a gallery, domestic interior or public space. This year she represents the United States of America at the 55th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia in Venice, Italy. Her exhibition Triple Point features installations inside and outside the Pavilion building. Much of Sarah Sze’s solo show evolved on-site over a three-month installation period. For Triple Point, the artist uses elements from the urban landscape of Venice such as photographs of stone, leaves from the Giardini, tickets from the Vaporetto. This video provides you with a walkthrough of the exhibition in the Biennale’s Giardini.

Sarah Sze: Triple Point. U.S. Pavilion at Venice Art Biennale 2013. Venice, Italy, May 30, 2013.

Sarah Sze. Installation at Mudam Luxembourg

The Musée d’art moderne Grand-Duc Jean (Mudam) in Luxembourg opens the 2012 program with a series of new exhibitions ranging from painting and sculpture to design and fashion. One of the shows presents a new work by New York-based artist Sarah Sze. Sarah Sze is known for her complex sculptures and site-specific installations, for which she utilizes everyday objects such as tea bags, water bottles, light bulbs, and electric fans. Mudam has invited Sarah Sze to create a new installation specifically for the Museum Pavilion. The artwork is titled Fixed Points Finding a Home.

Sarah Sze was born in 1969 in Boston. She graduated from Yale University in 1991 and received a MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York in 1997. Sze had solo projects at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, and the Institute of Contemporary Art in London. Her work has been exhibited in international venues such as the Venice Biennale, the Carnegie International, Pittsburgh, the Whitney Biennial, and the Sao Paolo Biennial. Sze is a 2003 John and Catherine T. MacArthur Fellow.

For New York’s High Line, she created a work that’s a sculpture as well as bird, butterfly and insect observatory, with perches, feeding spots and birdbaths (Still Life With Landscape). An exhibition that focuses specifically on Sarah Sze’s process (Infinite Line) is currently on display at the Asia Society, New York.

The exhibition at Mudam Luxembourg, curated by Marie-Noëlle Farcy runs from February 11 to September 16, 2012.
