Fondation Cartier presents Sarah Sze in conversation with Anselm Kiefer and Emanuele Coccia for the launch of 'Night into Day'

Thursday, April 15 at 2PM EST, Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain presents artist Sarah Sze in conversation with artist Anselm Kiefer and philosopher Emanuele Coccia for the virtual launch of Sarah Sze: Night into Day, published to accompany Sze's second solo show at the Fondation. From her studio in New York, Sze will virtually join Kiefer and Coccia, immersed in the exhibition in Paris, for a singular moment with poetry and literature.

ABOUT THE EVENT
The conversation will be conducted in English with French subtitles on fondationcartier.com.

It will bring together two major artists, Sarah Sze and Anselm Kiefer, with philosopher Emanuele Coccia. Together, they will talk about "Twice Twilight" and "Tracing Fallen Sky," two works with architectural dimensions produced by Sze for the Fondation Cartier, and Kiefer’s recently installed work at the Panthéon in Paris.

The conversation will be organized around the exhibition catalog, Sarah Sze: Night into Day.

Sarah Sze presented her first solo show at the Fondation Cartier in Paris in 1999. Two decades later, in October 2020, she inaugurated a new exhibition titled Night into Day in Jean Nouvel’s iconic building, with two sculptures specially created for the occasion. Inspired by the planetarium and the pendulum, age-old scientific tools designed to map the cosmos and trace the earth’s rotation, these two large-scale works investigate the role of the image in contemporary life and the increasing overlaps of the virtual and material worlds in our everyday experience.

SARAH SZE gleans objects and images from worlds both physical and digital, assembling them into complex multimedia works. Her dynamic, generative body of work spans sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking, video, and installation. Sze’s work is exhibited in museums worldwide and held in the permanent collections of prominent institutions.
Sze was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 2003 and a Radcliffe Fellowship in 2005. In 2013, she represented the United States at the Venice Biennale. Her work has been exhibited in museums worldwide and is held in the permanent collections of prominent institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Tate Modern, London.

ANSELM KIEFER'S work is an expansive exploration of German post-war identity, history, myth and collective memory. Fusing art and literature, Kiefer creates complex artworks with symbolic materials such as lead, straw, burnt books and cloth. By integrating and regenerating imagery and techniques, Kiefer engages historical events and the ancestral epics of life, death, and the cosmos. His oeuvre encompasses painting, photography, sculpture, artist books, and work on paper.
Kiefer’s work has been presented and collected by major museums throughout the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Tate Modern, London; the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; the Tel Aviv Museum of Art; the Sezon Museum of Art, Tokyo; the Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; the Centre Pompidou and the Louvre, Paris.

Passionate about botany, he is the author of Sensible Life: A Micro-Ontology of the Image (New York: Fordham University Press, 2016), The Life of Plants: A Metaphysics of Mixture (Medford: Polity Press, 2018) and Metamorphosis (Cambridge: Polity Books, 2021). In collaboration with Giorgio Agamben, he published Angeli. Ebraismo, Cristianesimo, Islam (Milan: Neri Pozza, 2009), a 2,000-page anthology on angels in Christian, Jewish and Islamic contexts. In 2019, he was a scientific advisor for the exhibition Trees, presented at the Fondation Cartier in Paris.
