For the past twenty years, Susan Cianciolo has moved between fields and formats – from fashion to craft, from performance to filmmaking – and the works presented in The Great Tetrahedral Kite speak to this restlessness. Cianciolo has produced a body of work that willfully evades categorization, exploiting the false dichotomies of construction and deconstruction, art and design, event and document.

In Nakako Hayashi's words:

Susan Cianciolo works for her heart.
Susan Cianciolo works for her soul.
It travels over time or space.
Whatever comes from it,
drawings or clothes or boxes or dolls,
all is a path for dreaming.
