Sarah Sze: Funny Feeling
The Serpentine Gallery is delighted to announce the release of its latest Limited Edition Print by American artist Sarah Sze. Specially produced on the occasion of the Serpentine’s group exhibition
State of Play (3 February to 28 March), this print is the latest in a series of collaborations with artists involved in the Gallery’s Exhibition Programme. As a collector of previous Serpentine Gallery Prints, we would like to offer you the first opportunity to purchase this work of art.
One of the thirteen artists included in State of Play, Sarah Sze creates elaborate systems and whimsical arrangements that reflect on the complex relationships and networks within contemporary life. This limited edition lithograph relates closely to her installation Second Means of Egress (Orange), 2004, which was specially created for the exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery. Inspired by the fire escapes found on facades of apartment buildings in Manhattan, the artist reinterprets these functional ladders and platforms into a small-scale, interconnected structure that climbs the walls of the Gallery. The image of the Limited Edition Print also depicts this series of intricate networks and ladder-like forms, as well as bringing to mind ideas of traditional architectural drawings and blueprints. Using shifts of scale, Sze creates a sense of vertigo in both this print and the work in the Gallery.
This Serpentine Gallery Limited Edition represents a unique opportunity to collect the work of a young artist who has achieved much acclaim in both the United States and internationally. Sze has had solo exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Art, London (1998), Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (1999) and the Cartier Foundation, Paris (1999-2000). Her work has also been included in the prestigious Venice Biennale (1999).
