On the twentieth anniversary of her first solo show at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, American sculptor Sarah Sze presents two new sculptural installations in the gallery spaces of Jean Nouvel’s iconic building. Commissioned by the Fondation Cartier, these works explore how the proliferation of images – printed in magazines, gleaned from the Web, intercepted from outer space – fundamentally changes our relation to physical objects, memories, and time.

On the occasion of the exhibition, the Fondation Cartier is publishing this richly illustrated catalogue, which includes sketches by the artists and exhibition views, retracing the creation of these sculptures. An essay by philosopher and sociologist Bruno Latour, a conversation between Sarah Sze and Jean Nouvel, and a text by the exhibition curator offers a deeper understanding of these two works as well as of the creative process of the artist and the references that are omnipresent in her work.
