Sarah Oppenheimer’s Typology of Holes begins with the premise that the specificity of site can be extended from the particular to the general. This generality (for us, the inheritors and inhabitants of modern space) is the arrangement of spatial zones that abut and overlap in a mappable way. Holes alter this arrangement, functioning as a catalyst for the transformation of the perceptual experience of the occupant. The hole is an active blurring of the (architectural) distinction between zones.
Oppenheimer’s work has been shown nationally and internationally. Recent projects include the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Warhol Museum, Art Unlimited at Art Basel, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the Saint Louis Art Museum, Mattress Factory, Skulpturens Hus (Stockholm), The Drawing Center, and Sculpture Center. She is the recipient of the Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome, the Louis Comfort Tiffany Biennial Award, and a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship among others. Oppenheimer is a critic at the Yale University School of Art.
