Art Basel Parcours 2021
Sarah Sze

September 20–26, 2021, 7pm–1am daily
Rheinsprung 9, Basel

Sarah Sze’s first large-scale outdoor video work will be a key feature of this year’s Art Basel Parcours, which engages the public and fairgoers by placing site-specific sculptures, interventions, and performances in the city’s historic center.

Timepiece (2021) by night transforms the facade of a four-story building at the top of the historic Rheinsprung into a plume of images seemingly let loose from their frame. A multitude of randomly coded video sequences—a moon, a card trick, an electrical storm, and more—appears at dusk, rising, pixelating, glitching, and eventually dispersing. Like nature, they seem to have unpredictable lives of their own. Timepiece is a collection of images digitally shuffled, like a deck of cards, in real time. Both artist and viewer experience a live collision of images in an evolving composition continually made in the moment. In this mesmerizing digital process, Sze further explores her original concept of timekeeping as a key framework for knowledge, meaning, and the record of life lived. This project is supported by Gagosian.

Night Into Day

Sarah Sze’s exhibition Night Into Day opened at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris, during the COVID-19 pandemic but was later closed due to lockdown restrictions in France. Produced on the occasion of the Fondation’s reopening, this video explores the various programming conceived to allow viewers to experience the exhibition while it was closed to the public, including a conversation between Sze, Anselm Kiefer, and philosopher Emanuele Coccia; a walk-through of the exhibition with the artist and philosopher Bruno Latour; and a livestreamed performance staged within the installation by Sze’s longtime friend, choreographer and dancer Trajal Harrell.
