Sarah Sze

I have no idea what the hell this is but HOW AMAZING does this look.

But to help you understand a little more about the exhibition in Luxembourg is about, in the words of curator Marie Noelle Farcy:

Inspired by Japanese-Chinese horticultural art, Sarah Szecreates visual landscapes of an abstract nature which are structured without any trace of structure or direction
Her works are often designed for display in intermediary places that attract little attention, such as stairwells, side corridors, corners or window niches. Sometimes hovering, and always light and playful, they ask general questions about scale: near and far, heavy and light.
Each individual work also interrogates the place in which it is exhibited and the (concrete and ideational) space of art that the viewers enter, often without noticing. 
Like gigantic scientific models of elegant and meditative microcosms, the works of Sarah Sze seem to comment on our behavioural patterns and our relationship with our world. 

Thanks to Ben Woodeson for providing the lead and inspiration.
