Tanya Bonakdar Gallery is currently presenting an installation exhibition by Sarah Sze. Sze blends and incorporates many materials and objects such as prints of nature images, mirrors, paint, metals, plants, and household items. When you walk into the first the floor main room, the work seems like it is under construction, but some of the objects look like they are being destroyed. Nothing appears completed. There are half built structures, fallen paint from the ceiling, and shredded prints. The installation is located through the whole gallery, instead of one giant piece. When viewers wander surrounded by scatteredly but carefully located pieces, each one can find a different interpretation depending on their own perspective.
Any minor piece may stealthily navigate you to the other rooms. Usually when you leave from a bright and spacious room, you will step into a dark and cramped one. Despite the high contrast of rooms, the artist's style and themes remain consistently. In the dark, Sze emphasizes more how the sound and light interact with her installation by projecting slow motion of animals running or flying. It is a sensory experience of dialogues of time and space. The way to discover this intricately crafted installation reminds me how we encounter our contemporary world where overabundance information generated.
