Sarah Sze: De nuit en jour / Night into Day
This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Sarah Sze: Night into Day at Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris. It documents two immersive installations—Twice Twilight and Tracing Fallen Sky (both 2020)—created by Sze specifically for the iconic Jean Nouvel–designed building. The works explore how the proliferation of images fundamentally changes our relation to physical objects and memories. Enveloping the architecture, Sze’s sculptures alter the visitor’s sense of gravity, scale, and time, confusing the boundaries between inside and outside, mirage and reality, past and present.
The catalogue includes texts by French philosopher Bruno Latour and exhibition curator Leanne Sacramone, as well as a conversation between Sze and Nouvel. Customers will randomly receive one of forty-eight unique covers, each with a different movable paper collage element, similar to those that appear in Sze’s paintings, tucked into a sleeve on the dust jacket.
