November 21st, 2pm
on ZOOM, Meeting ID: 899 6517 4265 (This event is part of the Artist at Home series.)

Sascha Mallon guides us through her museum solo show Innen Welten – Inner Worlds at the Woodstock Artist Association and Museum (WAAM).


Holding Space: Wall Painting, Porcelain, glazed, Wooden Shelves, Lace, 2020 at WAAM, Woodstock, NY

Sascha Mallon leads us personally (virtually via zoom) through the site-specific installations that combine groupings of small ceramic sculptures and wall paintings. Her work is predominantly about the cycle of life, and within that context her sculptures serve as pictograms, carriers of hidden messages, and memento mori. She creates dreamlike worlds whose narratives illustrate relationships, transitions, and dichotomies such as life/death. Her approach to making work is intuitive and spontaneous, and she is inspired by her thoughts and memories as well as the world around her. 

Sascha Mallon has exhibited her work in Austria, the USA, Taiwan, and Germany. Recently her work was included in Radius 50 at the Woodstock Artist Association and Museum, where she also will have a solo show in 2020. She was included in the  Art of the North East show at Silvermine Galleries and the The Edge Effect at the Katonah Museum of Art. Recently she had a solo exhibition at Walnut Hill Fine Art, Hudson, NY where she created a large installation made of ceramics, yarn, and wall painting. Her work was included in recent group exhibitions at Gormley Gallery/Notre Dame of Maryland University, Baltimore, MD; LAB Space, Hillsdale, NY; and the ELY Center for Contemporary Art, New Haven, CT; Gallery Anna25, Berlin, Germany; Attleboro Museum,NY, Penn State University, State College, PA; Garrison Arts Center, Garrison, NY; Kunstleben Berlin, Berlin, Germany; Front Room Gallery and A.I.R. Gallery, NY, NY; Barrett Arts Center, Poughkeepsie, NY. In 2017 Sascha was invited to participate in a residency and two-person exhibition at Soulangh Artist Village, Tainan, Taiwan sponsored by Cope NYC and the Tainan Department of Cultural Affairs and the Taiwanese American Arts Council. In 2018 she won first prize at the Garrison Arts Center for her work in the 2018 exhibition 2 ½ D. Sascha studied art therapy at ISSA/ School for Art Therapy in Austria, and she is currently an artist in residence at Mount Sinai at the Oncology and Hematology and at the Bone Marrow Transplant in New York City.
