Sarah Zse: New Works

Gagosian Basel, Rheinsprung 1, 4051 Basel, Switzerland

This is Sarah Sze’s first-ever exhibition in Switzerland. In concomitance to Art Basel, Sze’s first large-scale outdoor video work is exhibited at Art Basel Parcours.

In paintings, sculptures, and video installations, Sze grapples with the ideas and matter of time and entropy, underscoring the precious and precarious nature of materiality. The works on view transform the galleries into a unified, image-laden expanse, allowing viewers to grasp the formal and conceptual breadth of Sze’s practice. Cast sculptures “Wider Than the Sky” and “Deeper Than the Sea” (both from the 2020–21 series Fallen Sky) are directly related to Sze’s landmark installation that was inaugurated at Storm King Art Center in upstate New York this summer. Inspired by ancient architecture and the language of ruins, they catch passing light and shadow, appearing as if already disintegrated.
