K.OSS Contemporary Art is pleased to present the work of the Detroit sculptor and installation artist Sarah Wagner. The exhibition “Whether Ewe Like It or Not” is a part of a recent art installation “Vegetable Lamb Of America” which was recently exhibited at the Muskegon Museum of Art, MI.
In her new show at K.OSS Contemporary Art, Sarah Wagner: Whether Ewe Like It or Not, I am very excited to introduce you to the most recent work that Wagner created to explore her observations and struggles with the de-humanizing systems of the industrial world.
Inspired by the history of the cultivation of cotton, and its devastating impact on the development of capitalism and industrialism in the United States and beyond, she created a complex of sculptures made of fabric, steel from industrial buildings, drywall and concrete.
Throughout her fascinating career Wagner has explored themes of the manmade disasters, pollution, devastation and its impact on human beings, animal life and plant species. Her work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally and has been reviewed in Art Week and Art Papers. She received a Pollock/Krasner Grant and a Joan Mitchell Fellowship. She holds a BFA degree from the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga and a MFA from the College of the Arts, California.
