Callout: Accompanying a major exhibition of Sarah Sze's work at Asia Society Museum, Infinite Linereveals the relationship between Sze's sculptures and drawings, and the influence of East Asian artistic traditions on her work.
||Yale University Press, 10/2011
Sarah Sze erects vertiginous sculptural universes from common consumer products such as aspirin, foam, ladders, Q-Tips, plastic spoons, notepads, trash baskets, thimbles and wrapped candies. Always responsive to surrounding space, Sze's rhizomatic works are sometimes described as installation rather than sculpture, but an equally close or closer relationship occurs with drawing, the focus of the Asia Society Museum's major Sze exhibition opening in February 2012, and this new hardcover volume published for the occasion. Infinite Line is the first publication to address the relationship of Sze's sculpture to drawing, and to explore the influence of East Asian artistic traditions on her sensibility. "How do you make a sculpture that acts like a drawing?" Sze asks with these works. "How do you make a drawing that acts like a sculpture?"
This is the book that accompanies the exhibition Sarah Sze: Infinite Line at Asia Society from Dec 13, 2011 - March 25, 2012.
