Sarah Sze


On Sept. 1, the Victoria Miro Gallery in London will present an exhibition of new works by New York-based artist Sarah Sze. As a continuation of the artist’s sculptural aesthetic, Sze has created several new ephemeral installations that use throw-away materials such as water bottles, office lights, thread and scrap wood. The artist’s sculptures are integrated into the gallery walls, floors and ceiling and are organized to represent a microcosm that is able to exist and function as part of a larger system. Sze is a graduate of Yale University and the School of Visual Arts in New York City. She has exhibited internationally with shows at Malmo Konsthall in Sweden, the Fondation Cartier in Paris and the Whitney Museum in NYC, and she was also the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship in 2003.
