Shuli Sadé’s multi-disciplinary practice cross-blends theory, research and application with a focus on her interest in memory, space and urbanism. Her work embraces conventional and advanced techniques of fabrication. In creating artwork for a specific site her goal is to negotiate between public and space.
Her recent solo exhibitions include Wild_Heterotopias, an Augmented Reality installation at the HighLineNine Galleries and the HighLine, (2019) Fluid Formations, Gensler
DC, (2019) Solid Red at Galleria Ethra in Mexico City, Day Dreams, an Augmented Reality installation at Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, NY (2017) and group shows including Timing is Everything, Mead Art Museum collection (2018), Making Time, Augmented Reality, Index Art Center, Newark, NJ (2019), Anniversario, Datasets, Galeria Ethra, Mexico City (2019) Israeli Modernism in the 1970s from the Collection, Haifa Museum of Art (2016).
She had collaborated with Neural scientists at the Neurobiology of Cognition Laboratory, Center for Neural Science, New York University, and with architects and designers across the US. Sadé creates large scale site specific murals in the Corporate environment. Her recent artworks are permanently installed in several locations in Midtown Manhattan, Philadelphia, Boston and North Carolina.
Sadé received the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, (2014), the National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship (1991), New York Foundation for the Arts Emergency Grant (2001), Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Fund, NY- Israel Cultural Cooperation Commission Grant, AICF study grant, NY Art Development Committee grants. Her work is in private and public collections. She lives in NYC and works at her studio at Mana Contemporary, NJ. Her work is represented by Galleria Ethra in Mexico City
My interest in physical memory is inspired by the ongoing
scientific research of the hippocampal ability to record and
remember space. Neural systems encode direction, navigation and spatial recognition. Brains and cities share navigational structures. Through processing my photographs I access digital tools which enable me to capture, store, encode, decode, archive and retrieve memory. Digital magnification, a microscopic visibility into details permits visibility to particles otherwise unseen with bare eyes or through a camera lens. By separating individual pixels details are amplified, unveiling unfamiliar information. I create new landscapes to reflect the DNA of a city.
