Installationsansicht, Victoria Miro, London 2015
The futility of human behaviour, the fragility and transience of all our actions, even if they are aimed at building complex systems, is such an insight – especially seen in the light of eternity characterizing matter. This awareness of the ephemeral is the starting point for Sarah Sze's Calendar Series. Her installation shows ninety-two front pages of the New York Times where news images have been replaced with images of the natural world: snowscapes, seascapes and rockscapes. On each one is a rock or a clay fragment of a shape, eternal, immutable, and in one case, a down jacket becoming a flower. The work pervades the public with a sense of the single event's irrelevance to the infinite, but also with the gigantic distance between the earth as a self-contained system and the rest of the universe.
