 Invisible Invincible is one of Sarah's more controversial exhibitions. Sarah included a Polish artist Agnieszka Karant's work -- a live bird that had been saved from the Zoo.




 The course included Kurant saying "I don't believe I'm a bird," questioning his own existence. The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum ultimately commissioned Kurant for The

 SB: As you may have guessed, I had to close my gallery in Berlin in 2008 following the crash, like so many others. The bright side of the whole thing was that it




 This enabled us and our husband to relocate to Spain which is which is where we had previously been in a long-distance marriage. When he finished his Ph.D.,




 He was offered a scholarship to the University of Okayama in Japan and we decided to move to Japan in 2011. It wasn't until my son could start nursery school in Japan that




 I was able to return to full-time work.




 That was the moment when I knew that I had to get back into the world of art. I have had a constant urge to curate, collaborate creatively with artists and discover new things.




 New talent visiting studios. It's my passion. This is my favorite thing.




 Additionally, I had to earn a living. I also had international experience. My goal was to use my network and leverage my previous experiences.




 Experience in creating a sustainable company model where I can work from Japan or any other location. Retrospectively the pandemic, and its subsequent revival of the




 New norm for WFH and remote work, it has really helped me.
