Meet Sarah Gross

Today’s artist in residence in Sarah Gross (USA) AIR 2018. Her show title “Making Way” seems particularly appropriate as we renegotiate our space and spatial relationship to others in the wake of the coronavirus. “Closeness does not establish intimacy. I grew up in New York City, always sharing space with people I did not know. The contradiction of physical density and emotional distance made me feel simultaneously alienated by and enamored with millions of strangers. I explore this conflict by making work that manifests invisible dividers and destabilizes familiar relationships. Inviting and forbidding, my work addresses issues of power, desire, vulnerability, and visibility. Through it, I disrupt ideas about gender roles, sacred space and what it means to be the object of another person’s gaze.”
