Sarah Sze (born 1969) has earned deserved acclaim since the late 1990s for her intricate assemblages of everyday consumer products, painstakingly arranged by hand into immense, site-specific installations that engage the viewer in a dizzying play of perspective and scale. Often every crevice of an architectural space is utilized in her complex constructions, composed of thousands of objects, works that converge at the intersection of drawing, sculpture and architecture. Sarah Sze: Triple Point is a major new publication on the work of this celebrated artist, documenting Sze’s ambitious, large-scale exhibition at the U.S. Pavilion of the 2013 Venice Biennale, with 64 pages of full-color plates and several significant new texts on Sze and her practice. Included is a conversation between the artist and Pulitzer Prize winning author Jennifer Egan, along with a short story by Egan entitled “Black Box.” Curator and scholar Johanna Burton contributes a compelling new examination of Sze’s practice, and 2013 Biennale Co-Commissioners Holly Block and Carey Lovelace provide an introduction to the project and artist. Elegantly realized by award-winning designer Takaaki Matsumoto, Sarah Sze: Triple Point is certain to be a lasting testament to the continued development of this exciting and original artist.
