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.

Night Vision 20/20
Sarah Sze has created Night Vision 20/20, an immersive mobile app that uses augmented reality to take users, wherever they may be, into a nocturnal dream world. It was developed by the digital agency Cher Ami in conjunction with the artist’s exhibition Night into Day at Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris. The visual elements, composed of videos drawn from Sze’s installations, transform the users’ perception of reality through their smartphone screen. Night Vision 20/20 also features a sound piece created by Sze, bringing the user into the artist’s universe and opening the door to a personal and playful exploration of her art. To download the free app, visit the App Store or Google Play Store.
