Sarah Sze makes site specific installation. Using commonplace, ephemeral objects, her works penetrate the gallery, protrude from walls and furrow up from the ground. For this exhibition, her second solo show at Victoria Miro, the artist takes over both floors of the gallery to create a conceptual constellation of everyday objects.
It is about our perceptions of space, how we imagine ourselves within the confines of a particular location. In this sense, Sze transforms the gallery into a kind of laboratory. Works titled Model for a Weather Vane, Model for a Twin, Model for a Print and Model for a Diviner make clear her preoccupation with art being a test site for an hypothesis. The gallery is the conference for this congruence. These are works that revel in and are defined by their intricacies. Tactile works that humour the medula oblongata.
Sarah Sze is at Victoria Miro until 11 August.
