Elizabeth Jaeger is a New York based sculptor who explores notions of memento mori by embedding emotions and experiences within handmade representations of everyday objects and figurative sculptures. She is best known for her ominously large and thin steel vases. This body of work provokes a powerful sense of unease and depicts human experience in ways that can be impossible to verbalize. Jaeger's practice also concentrates on figurative representations, which range from sculptures based on her body to erotic representations of relationships. Her varied work consistently confronts the viewer and draws them into her personal narrative.
Elizabeth Jaeger’s work has been included in group and solo shows, including DESTE Foundation, Athens, White Flag Projects, St. Louis, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, SculptureCenter, New York, MoMA PS1, New York, and BRIC, New York. Her work has been featured in Artforum, ARTnews, Hyperallergic, and Interview Magazine.
