“Canadian photographer, artist and graphic designer, Sara Cwynar (b. 1985) combines photographic images with installations, collages and sculptures. She has a constant need to collect photographs, objects and all kinds of ephemera, which she then re-arranges and documents. Sara currently lives and works in New York.

For the installation, ‘Everything in the Studio (Destroyed)’, which is being exhibited at Foam 3h as part of the young talent program me of Foam, Sara Cwynar took all of the materials in her studio at one time, documented each items and arranged it into a digital plan where she could fit the entire contents into a corner of the gallery.

Sara attempted to install the archive according to the plan, which quickly began to fall apart as images and objects were not how she had remembered them. She left the materials for a month, then destroyed the whole thing, … so that she would be forced to purge the archive – allowing herself to start anew, and documenting everything only with a camera.

All that remains of this studio’s worth of materials is the image. ‘Everything in the Studio (Destroyed)’ by Sara Cwynar can be seen until 16th of May 2013 at Foam. An exhibition made possible by Van Bijlevelt Stichting and the Gieskes-Strijbis Fund.”
