by Sarah Szczesny

All the way from Cologne, Germany, Sarah Szczesny (Villa Aurora Fellow 2021) is back in LA for her Tinseltown debut at O-Town House! Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, this Hollywood Hopeful brought a chest chock full of treasures with her: an exhibition of new paintings, collages, animations and sound-scapes.

Sarah Loses Out (You Ought to be in Pictures) is on view from July 23, 2022 until October 1, 2022.

Join us for our exclusive Artist Talk with Sarah Szczesny and Scott Cameron Weaver (founder, director, and curator of O-Town House)!


About the Artist

Sarah Szczesny, born in Starnberg, lives and works in Cologne. She studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy and graduated as a master student from Prof. Rosemarie Trockel. Szczesny's method of dissecting, distorting and separating images, such as cartoon film elements, characterizes her collage, painting and video work. She examines the conditions of painting by stretching the medium's boundaries through experimental interventions–for example by using gif and loop techniques as well as sound effects–creating a multidimensionality that gives the painting character of movement and thus locates it in the tradition of cartoons. In this process of animation of collages, which is so essential for her work, Szczesny combines formal studies and citations of pop culture and art history.
