The New York-based artist Sarah Sze is known for her complex sculptures and site-specific installations made of everyday objects such as tea bags, water bottles, and electric fans. Her works manipulate the space, be it a gallery, domestic interior or public space. This year she represents the United States of America at the 55th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia in Venice, Italy. Her exhibition Triple Point features installations inside and outside the Pavilion building. Much of Sarah Sze’s solo show evolved on-site over a three-month installation period. For Triple Point, the artist uses elements from the urban landscape of Venice such as photographs of stone, leaves from the Giardini, tickets from the Vaporetto. This video provides you with a walkthrough of the exhibition in the Biennale’s Giardini.
