Sarah Kabot: Unfolding Space

February 12, 2011 - June 11, 2011
Judith Bear Isroff Gallery

Cleveland artist Sarah Kabot creates installations that toy with human perception by altering the physical environment, specifically the seemingly mundane structures of the built environment. With her “interventions,” as she calls them, Kabot asks us to question what we think we know about the things we see every day and sharpen our awareness of our surroundings.

To assemble what she refers to as "interventions," Kabot often uses foamcore, a rigid but lightweight material, which allows her to assemble elaborate installations that aren't overly cumbersome. In Unfolding Space, Kabot will replicate the lights, floorboards and wall surfaces of the museum’s Isroff Gallery and then use these objects to both deconstruct and reconfigure the space.

Visit for an interview with Sarah Kabot, a time-lapse video of the installation, and more.

This exhibition is made possible by generous support from Harris • Stanton Gallery and Fran and Jules Belkin.
