    About The Work

    Sarah Morris’s work engages with the possibilities that painting and film generate in dialogue with place, politics and the city. She uses collective, social and bureaucratic systems as material to implicate occluded systems of control. Also at play are allusions to film and popular culture, bold graphic forms, and a distinct color sensibility. With its title referencing Fritz Lang’s 1927 masterpiece, Metropolis is composed of six rectangular blocks that emerge from a dark ground, each divided by rhythmically flickering interior rectangles, suggesting the urban space of the title. A crowd of perfect circles spills down to the work’s edge, growing larger as they bounce out.
