SARAH WAGNER: Yard/Zone
Saturday Octtober 4th, 7-11pm
Sarah Wagner transforms paper and tape, fabric and thread to recreate an urban ecosystem grappling with impermanence, cultural dynamism and repopulation. The installation is the most recent of Wagner’s portraits of her “banglatown” neighborhood and features scale models of the predominant housing types in conjunction with fauna from the re-naturalizing area. “I am exploring the complexities of my neighborhood” says Sarah Wagner.
Sarah Wagner is a sculptor and installation artist whose work renders the frailties and strengths wrought by the dynamism of emotional and biological development within an increasingly unnatural world. Her investigations and renderings of the ecological systems has inspired her to explore exhibition venues as unnatural environments within which to create models for parallel worlds. Her work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally at Projekt 0047 (Berlin), Homie (Berlin), Cress Gallery (Chattanooga), de Saisset Museum (Santa Clara), Museum of Craft and Folk Art.
