Sarah Morris creates paintings and films that explore urban codes and power structures.

Sarah Morris creates paintings and films that explore urban codes and power structures, most recently of Paris, Rio, and Beijing. Her graphic, diagrammatic paintings employ rigorous abstraction to create a virtual architecture that plays with notions of social space and identity. Located at the crossroads of Pop, Minimal art and geometric abstraction, Morris has been an influential force since the mid-1990s, investigating the complex conversation between social space, identity, and power. 

The exhibition ‘Astros Hawk’ at M presents four films, including the most recent film, ‘Strange Magic’ (2014), a selection of paintings and a new wall painting.  

Until 20.03.16 at M-Museum Leuven
