Sarah Ortmeyer



21er Raum at 21er Haus, Vienna

February 5 — April 17, 2016


KOKO PARADISE is the final part of an exhibition triptych by Sarah Ortmeyer. At different times and in three different places (Paris, New York and Vienna), the KOKO trilogy deals with escapism and avarice. KOKO PARADISE shows palm trees in a tableau that is as beautiful as it is sad.


Sarah Ortmeyer was born in 1980 and lives in Vienna. Her works have been exhibited at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art (2016), the Monnaie de Paris (2015), the Swiss Institute, New York (2014), the Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2013), the Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst, Gent (2012), the Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw (2012), the Frankfurter Kunstverein (2011), the MAK Center, Los Angeles (2010), the Stedelijk Museum Bureau, Amsterdam (2009) and the KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin (2009), among others. A new project in collaboration with Andrew Wyatt will open this Valentine’s Day at the MoMA PS1 in New York City.
