Shuli Sadé is a multi-disciplinary artist currently living in New York. Her work includes a wide range of techniques and mediums like photography, video, drawing, sculpture installation and augmented reality.
Back in 2017, Shuli Sadé visited Mexico City and made a selection of some of the most impressive skyscrapers. She went to the top of each one and shoot photographs of the landscapes drawn from the heights. After that, she digitally intervened the images, carefully studied each one, and appropriated the content to produce a series of works that reflect her experience in Mexico City.
Currently, Shuli is hosting the solo exhibition “Solid Red” at Galería Ethra in México City. The works shown are the result from her visit to Mexico City. In her work, she invites us to think about how mega cities are in constant change and how we live them. She generates a dialogue with the observer, starting from her perception of the relationship between Mexico and the United States; their similarities and social, cultural and political differences. In this works, Sadé uses Pantone colors 193C and 186C, which are the tones of red used in the flags of Mexico and the United States.
In her website Shuli states: “My experiments with encoded memory blurring the dichotomies of perception and reality. Drawn from a wide range of original data from my photographs of urbanism I create a memory cell system which explores complexed platforms of memory patterns. On viewing the image through a magnifier, there is a clear visibility of the composing particles which can be digitally reorganized. Through pixels fragmentation, removal and assembly I create new layered landscapes. An ongoing conversation between reality and interpretation is taking over the original data. My personal intervention processing manual data results in new algorithms inspired pattens”.
Sadé has taught and lectured at the University of Pennsylvania School of Architecture, Parsons School of Design, Columbia University’s Barnard College, Bezalel Academy of Art and Design School of Architecture. She received the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, (2014), a 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 numerous private and public collections. Her installation at the Neurobiology of Cognition Laboratory at NYU (2010–2012) was selected among Top 100 best art projects in Collaboration of Design and Art awards (CoD+A Top 100, 2013). We are proud to have Shuli Sadé among our artists.
