Sarah Kabot: Enough

Sarah Kabot's site-specific installation, Enough, is a full scale, three-dimensional, gray and white paper line drawing of the Main Gallery's architecture. The physical elements of the Main Gallery, meticulously and sparingly recreated, are shifted by one foot towards the center of the room. These bland, mundane architectural elements - the most basic, apparently unalterable materiality of the space and the parts that usually recede in the mind's eye of the viewer - are brought to the fore to spark considerations of the nature of reality. With the insistent emphasis upon the physical parts of the space, their particular spatial locations, and their transformation by reproduction and relocation, Kabot's work challenges the viewer's daily perceptions and comprehension of any object's possible structure, location, and meaning. Her work presents the positivist likelihood of endless other possibilities.

Sarah Kabot is Assistant Professor at the Cleveland Institute of Art, a 2008-09 residency artist at Dieu Donné Papermill (New York, NY), and a 2009 artist-in-residence at Sculpture Space (Utica, NY). Later this year her work will be seen in a solo exhibition at Sasaki (Boston, MA) and at The Drawing Center (New York, NY). In 2008, her work was exhibited at Mixed Greens Gallery (New York, NY) and Smack Mellon Gallery (Brooklyn, NY). Her installations have been exhibited in Cleveland at Tri C's Gallery West (2009), Raw & Co. (2007), SPACES (2004), and in On the Flip Side, the 2006 Wendy L. Moore Emerging Artist exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland. They have also been seen at Cranbook Art Museum (Cranbrook, MI), Bradley University (Peoria, IL), and other galleries in Cleveland, Grand Rapids and Interlochen (MI). Kabot holds a MFA in Fiber from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, MI (2002) and a BFA in Fiber and Ceramics from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI (1999).
