(b. 1951, Cruz Alta, Brazil. Lives in New York, works in Brooklyn and Beijing)
From the naturalistic to the abstract surreal, Saint Clair Cemin’s broad sculptural vocabulary presents a bold panoply of work both striking and immediate. Cannibalizing the history of sculpture itself, as well as its many styles and techniques, Cemin’s inventive forms span the vast expanse of the visual universe.
Exhibited widely throughout the United States and abroad, Cemin’s work is also included in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Fonds National d’Art Contemporain, Paris, France; Emily Fisher Landau Collection, Long Island City, NY; Rooseum, Stockholm, Sweden; Eli Broad Family Foundation, Los Angeles, CA; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA; and Inhotim, Minas Gerais, Brazil, among many others.
