It gives Copenhagen Contemporary great pleasure to invite you to the opening of Timekeeper (2016) – an installation by the US artist Sarah Sze, who represented the USA at the 2013 Venice Bienniale. The opening takes place Thursday 9. March 17.00 – 21.00. Emma Acs will create the soundtrack of the evening, La Halle will offer a glass of wine at the door and the entrance is free.

Sarah Sze has won worldwide acclaim for her complex visual idiom and large-scale total installations that envelop the body and stimulate our senses. Timekeeper (2016) doubles as sculptural installation and as functional tool: a projector of itself. Screens flicker and fade, machines click and whirr, while projected images appear and reappear on the gallery walls and race, cyclically, around the room. This kaleidoscopic encounter echoes the deluge of information we process each day; images and events, at once familiar and strange, coalesce into a suggestion of time as both collapsed and expanded by memory and experience.

Sarah Sze was born in Boston, Massachusetts and lives and works in New York. Sze, who represented the United States at the 2013 Venice Biennale, is known for a distinctive visual language that employs a wealth of materials and objects. She has exhibited in museums worldwide, and her works are held in the permanent collections of prominent institutions including The Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum in New York and The Fondation Cartier in Paris.
