San Francisco,

Karin Sander’s conceptual works range from barely-there interventions to vibrant, encompassing installations. Her discursive practice focuses our attention on seemingly inconsequential aspects of the exhibition site and to the hidden systems that surround gallery visitors. For Wall Pieces (2004), a section of plaster wall in the Guggenheim was polished to a high sheen—a work only visible from specific angles and nearly unphotographable. Her work Core Drillings (2011), replaced the trashcans in the administrative offices above the gallery with holes, slowly filling an otherwise empty exhibition space with workday detritus. Based in Berlin and Zurich, Sander has presented solo projects at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, Switzerland; Lehmbruck Museum, Duisburg, Germany; and at Skulptur Projekte, Münster, Germany.
