Anri Sala

  •  

Anri Sala constructs transformative, time-based works through multiple relationships between image, architecture, and sound, employing these as elements to fold, capsize, and question experience. His works investigate ruptures in language, syntax, and music, inviting creative dislocations, which generate new interpretations of history, supplanting old fictions and narratives with less-explicit, more-nuanced dialogues.

Anri Sala has been awarded a number of prizes during his career, such as the The Vincent Award, Den Haag in 2014, and the Biennale di Venezia (Young Artist Prize), Venice, in 2001, among others.

His work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Fondation Pinault, Paris (2022); GAMeC, Bergamo (2022); Kunsthaus Bregenz, Bregenz (2021); Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern, Houston (2021); Centro Botìn, Santander (2019); Mudam, Luxembourg (2019); the Castello di Rivoli, Turin (2019); Museo Tamayo, Mexico City (2017); the New Museum, New York (2016); Haus der Kunst, Munich (2014); Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (2012); Serpentine Gallery, London (2011); Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami, Miami (2008); ARC, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Paris (2004).
