About the Artist
Since the late 1990s, Sarah Sze has developed a signature visual language that challenges the static nature of sculpture. Sze draws from Modernist traditions of the found object, dismantling their authority with dynamic constellations of materials that are charged with flux, transformation and fragility. Captured in this suspension, her immersive and intricate works question the value society places on objects and how objects ascribe meaning to the places and times we inhabit.
Sarah Sze’s Hammock (For Rauschenberg) featured in the 2017 ARoS Triennial
A new commission for the inaugural ARoS Triennial: The Garden, End of Times, Beginning of Times, Sarah Sze's Hammock (For Rauschenberg) stretches across a wooded ravine which drops sharply to the sea. Divided into three sections (The Past, The Present and The Future) the Triennial focuses on depictions of nature throughout history and features works by international artists. Sze's work is included in The Future, which explores artistic responses to environmental change. Film by outofsync-artinfocus.com.
