Sara Magenheimer at the New Museum
Working across a range of media including video, sound, performance, sculpture, collage, and installation, New York–based artist Sara Magenheimer (b. 1981, Philadelphia, PA) disrupts, manipulates, and defamiliarizes language with bold combinations of image and text. Her videos incorporate traditional filmic editing techniques alongside those inspired by music and collage. In syncopated progressions of pictures and words, Magenheimer pushes against the bounds of narrative, charting circuitous storylines through vernacular associations that invite individual interpretations. Through surprising juxtapositions of language, graphic compositions, and idiosyncratic imagery, she reveals how visual and verbal signs mutate and guide manifold pathways to understanding.
