'If silence is golden, Dutch artist Sarah van Sonsbeeck is a bank' says Nicola Bozzi. 'Her work, ranging across all sorts of media, is always infused with an attention for space, an heritage of her years as an architecture student. It deals with the immaterial, but also with chance. If silence is a place of intimacy, free from the incursions of the outside environment, the accidents that break it are meaningful, enigmatic, chaotic events storming their way into our world. Sound - or lack thereof - is then only one of the dimensions of her installations, consisting primarily in a fragile and intimate experience to cherish and keep to ourselves. In the shape of minimal container cubes, silk-screened vinyl discs, wooden structures or documentary photography, her works almost always imply an interaction with the viewers.' - Artslant : The Slant on Sarah van Sonsbeeck, by Nicola Bozzi, November 2010 With "Mistakes I’ve Made and Remade", Sarah van Sonsbeeck transforms and re-activates two older works by literally using the waste of one to transform the other. Using an existing work she was unhappy with and gold leaf debris, which are strewn into faraday paint (blocking electromagnetic signals), Van Sonsbeeck takes the theme of space to its outer edge, re-creating the universe.
