La galerie de la Biennale

Sarah Sze creates ephemeral site-specific sculptures, using thousands of small, everyday objects to assemble shapes which, while irrational, are strictly controlled. Coming together as networks of impossible meanings and associations, her ladders, feathers, stalks, scissors and fragments of polystyrene soar through spaces that they take over totally and transform into a vast realm of their own. Each object is part of a whole: an endlessly reformulated version of chaos theory, Sze’s works are a mixture of change and a delicate balance which deconstructs the space as it generates possible worlds. This is a strange ecosystem reminiscent of a cycle of transformation and reclamation, of growth and death: once the exhibition is over, the works are dismantled and the materials set aside for use in a new sculpture. Sze’s installations also incorporate the contingencies of time and place: air movement within the space, orchestration of the weight of the objects used, and colours that fade.
