Sarah Sze's first exhibition with the gallery spans both floors. The work on the ground floor is new to the gallery, while the piece on the second floor incorporates a reconfiguration of a recent work - Tilting Planet - initially shown at Malmö Konsthall, Sweden.
Since the late 1990s Sarah Sze's signature sculptural aesthetic has presented ephemeral installations that penetrate walls, suspend from ceilings and burrow into the ground. Creating immense, yet intricate site-specific work the artist utilises a myriad of everyday objects in her installations - cotton buds and tea bags; water bottles and ladders; light bulbs and electric fans. Each piece is subject to Sze's careful consideration of every shift in scale between the humble and the monumental, the throwaway and the precious, the incidental and the essential.
In this new body of work Sarah Sze organizes space as if it is a remnant of human behaviour discovered by accident. The formal construction of the pound-store objects as rafts, nests, tents, and escape routes mimics the necessities that emerge from various survival mechanisms and states of refuge. Like an entire ecosystem, these individual objects participate in larger systems of interaction performing a role beyond their commonplace function.
