Sarah Oppenheimer

b. 1972 in Austin, USA / Lives and works in New York, USA

Sarah Oppenheimer is an architectural manipulator. Oppenheimer creates circulatory pathways that establish unexpected kinesthetic and visual relays between bodies and buildings. Gestural manipulation of interwoven instruments alters the contours of surrounding architecture. Rhythms and timescales of living systems flow from body to building and back again. The viewer is transformed into an agent of spatial change.
Oppenheimer’s recent solo exhibitions include Sensitive Machine (Wellin Museum of Art, USA 2021), N-01 (Kunstmuseum Thun, Switzerland 2020), S-337473 (Mass MoCA, USA 2019), S-337473 (Wexner Center for the Arts, USA 2017), S-281913 (Pérez Art Museum Miami, USA 2016), S-399390 (MUDAM Luxembourg 2016) and 33-D (Kunsthaus Baselland, Switzerland 2014). Oppenheimer’s work has also been exhibited at ZKM, the Baltimore Museum, the Andy Warhol Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Art Unlimited at Art Basel, the Mattress Factory, the Drawing Center, and the Sculpture Center. Oppenheimer is currently a senior critic at the Yale University School of Art.
