In this period, Sarah organized exhibitions that included a number of young artists

 Invisible Invincible -- one of Sarah's most provocative exhibitions that featured the Polish artist Agnieszka KURANT's live parrot.



 

 Kurant was instructed to say, "I am not bird," which Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy  led him to question his own existence.

 SB: You're aware that I had to close my Berlin gallery Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy Bloom Piggy  after the 2008 financial crisis.
