Description

10 April 2009 - 31 August 2009

Robert Blackson (curator) talks about the work of Sarah Sze. Followed by the voice of the artist herself. This audio recording was made at the time of the Sarah Sze exhibition at BALTIC in 2009

BALTIC presents American Artist, Sarah Sze’s largest UK solo exhibition to date. Tilting Planet is a cluster of sculptural installations each cobbled together out of common disposable items such as water bottles, drawing pins, paper, salt, string, lamps, matchsticks and wire. Sze’s expansive sculptural vocabulary uses these items constructively to precisely build structures that defamiliarise our preconceived ideas of these objects, lending them a new found use and vitality. These cumulative sculptures mould themselves into spaces – spreading ivy-like throughout the gallery.
