Sarah Sze, De nuit en jour / Night into Day

43 €

More than twenty years after her first solo show at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, American artist Sarah Sze presented from October 24, 2020 to March 7, 2021 two new sculptural installations in the exhibition spaces of Jean Nouvel’s iconic building. Commissioned by the Fondation Cartier, these large-scale works explore how the proliferation of images—printed in magazines, gleaned from the Web, intercepted from outer space—fundamentally changes our relation to physical objects, memories, and time.

On the occasion of the exhibition, the Fondation Cartier conceived a richly illustrated catalog, designed in close collaboration with the artist, retracing the creation and the presentation of these two works. An essay by philosopher and sociologist Bruno Latour, a conversation between Sarah Sze and Jean Nouvel, and a text by Leanne Sacramone, curator of the exhibition, offer a deeper understanding of these two works, as well as of the creative process of the artist and of the references that are omnipresent in her work.
