This event has ended.

signs and symbols present the first US solo exhibition of English artist/architect Sarah Entwistle. The exhibition, titled It may prove a mere accident that we met, or it may prove a necessity, is conceived by the artist as an autobiographical exploration from within the archive of her late grandfather and fellow architect, Clive Entwistle (b.1916 – d.1976, Manhattan), whom she never met. The installation responds to an image of a staged trade fair interior (c.1969) designed by Clive, and features a still life of objects ranging from marbled ink drawings on archival paper, a large handwoven tapestry, ceramics, raw sheet steel wall lamps, a table and a white Persian cat.

sarah entwistle (b.1979, London) lives in Berlin. She received her BSc from The Bartlett School of Architecture, London and her Dip. from the Architectural Association, London, where she subsequently taught a design unit. Her solo show In short, in theory and with a bit of luck (2012) at the Architectural Association marked the beginning of her engagement with her late grandfather’s archive. She is the 2014 recipient of the Le Corbusier Foundation Grant for Visual Artists and in 2015 presented a solo exhibition, He was my father and I an atom destined to grow into him, at the Le Corbusier Foundation in Paris. The exhibition coincided with the publication of her experimental biography, Please send this book to my mother, Sternberg Press, 2015. She was the recipient of the Graham Foundation for the Advanced Studies in Fine Art, Chicago publication and production grant in 2014. In 2017, she received a grant from the Arts Council England, Artists’ International Development Fund, with which she is developing an ambitious site-specific installation for the Zevaco House, Casablanca in collaboration with curator Salma Lahlou. Her most recent solo exhibition, All that I have acquired in life is yours for the taking, and in fact you must take it (2018), was at Etage Projects, Copenhagen.
