Lara Saget’s work considers how no single system exists in a vacuum. Drawing from diverse fields including, but not limited to, ecology, engineering, social and cognitive science, physics, and anatomy, her work illuminates how these intellectual systems are a way of viewing the world and not a mirror of the world. She uses methods of sculpture, installation, performance, and video to explore the complexities of interconnected systems, stressing the dangers of single lens reduction. Her work has appeared in exhibitions including Collaborative Concepts, Saunders Farm (New York, NY) 2018, Antifurniture Store, Fortnight Institute (New York, NY) 2018, Surface Down, 80 WSE (New York, NY) 2017, residues, McCagg Gallery (New York, NY) 2016, Inter-change, Fairmont Miramar (Los Angeles, CA) 2015, BFC Presents What's Next (Brooklyn, NY) 2014, and Into the Monochrome, Peninsula Art Space (Brooklyn, NY) 2013.
