The Boston Globe


First Person

Her winding path

Sculptor/installation artist and New York resident Sarah Sze is representing the United States at the Venice Biennale. The Italian city reminds her of her hometown, Boston.

 The work I am installing here in Venice is a response to the building, it’s site specific. The [US] Pavilion is a building that’s very symmetrical and very hierarchical. I’m TRYING TO THROW OFF THAT SYMMETRY, so the whole movement through space becomes more of a circuitous route of moments of discovery.

IN VENICE YOU’RE CONSTANTLY GETTING LOST and finding yourself, because routes are winding, like the route I’m trying to create. Discovery and spontaneity are part of your experience at every turn.
