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 discusses her 2015 exhibition at Victoria Miro
Sarah Sze's 2015 exhibition at Victoria Miro spanned all three spaces and was the artist's third solo show with the gallery and her first presentation in Europe since representing the United States at the 2013 Venice Biennale. In the Wharf Road galleries the exhibition comprised three installations – one on each floor – which the artist conceived as a series of different experiments exploring the construction and measurement of space, mass, time, and volume through the use of materials. Sze was artist in residence at The Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia in 2013 - 2014. The installations presented in the Wharf Road galleries, made in collaboration with The Fabric Workshop and Museum, were specially reconceived and reconfigured especially for the London exhibition.
