"A meditation on what life has been like for millions of us in 2020: a world broken into fragments that we're still trying to piece together." -The Guardian
American artist Sarah Sze (born 1969) exhibited her first solo show at the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain at the turn of the millennium; two decades later, she returns to the exhibition spaces of Jean Nouvel's iconic building in the midst of a similarly contentious global environment with two new sculptures specially created for the occasion.
These pieces explore how the contemporary proliferation of images--via print and pixel, from deep space to the deep web--fundamentally changes our relationship to time, memory and the physical presence of objects. This catalog, boasting 48 different covers, was designed in close collaboration with the artist and details the execution of Sze's installation. An essay by philosopher Bruno Latour, a conversation between Sze and Jean Nouvel, and an essay by exhibition curator Leanne Sacramone provide further insight into the process behind this work and Sze's artistic philosophy.
