Asia Society museum in New York presents works by artist Sarah Sze in "Infinite Line"
Hidden Relief 2001 Mixed media 168 x 60 x 12 in. “Hidden Relief,” Asia Society Museum, New York October 1, 2001 – October 1, 2004 Collection of Nancy and Stanley Singer.

NEW YORK, N.Y.- Sarah Sze (born 1969, U.S.) is known for her elaborate installations in which everyday materials—such as plastic bottle caps, sheets of paper, strings, tape measures, cotton swabs, and scissors—are hung from the ceiling, mounted in corners, or nestled into discreet spaces. Sarah Sze: Infinite Line is the first exhibition to focus specifically on Sze’s work from drawings to sculpture to installation.

Sze combines spontaneity and systemization in her work, which often suggests movement and the ephemeral. Energized chaos becomes painstaking order, when, upon closer inspection, seemingly turbulent scenarios reveal precisely placed objects. Her intimate, sculptural installations invite viewers to reevaluate their relationship to their surroundings.

The exhibition is divided into two parts. A smaller gallery houses earlier works on paper including graphite, ink and collage, lithograph and silkscreen. Some are unconventional portraits in which Sze asked each of her subjects to share a list of key events that shaped their lives. She then pictorialized the individual narratives and developed them into small drawings that reveal the subjects’ personal life stories.

A larger gallery features several new works that play with the boundaries between drawing and sculpture. Using the vertical format of a hanging scroll as a starting point, the works extend from the wall and are drawn to the floor as they examine illusionary space, perspective, and the representation of landscape.

The exhibition is on view on view December 13, 2011 through March 25, 2012.
