      Susan Philipsz: Seven Tears

      Born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1965, Turner Prize-winning artist Susan Philipsz is best known for her works that explore the potential of sound—often including her own, untrained voice—to define space and its interaction with architecture. Created in response to specific places and their architectural, environmental, and historic contexts, Philipsz’s sound installations bring to life the meaning of the places in which they are sited. The exhibition will include a newly commissioned installation, Too Much I Once Lamented, created for the Pulitzer’s Tadao Ando-designed building. Situated in the museum’s central water court, where a reflecting pool offers dynamic views of the surrounding environment, the installation features Philipsz singing a seventeenth-century lament that describes a heartbroken lover in a state of solitary reflection. Other works—poetic meditations on loss, hope, and longing—will animate the museum’s galleries and surrounding architecture, creating a constellation of singular, immersive environments.
