EDIFICE, COMPLEX, VISIONARY, STRUCTURE, Sean Kelly Gallery, New York. 6 January – 3 February 2018

EDIFICE, COMPLEX, VISIONARY, STRUCTURE, at the Sean Kelly Gallery, New York is a group exhibition featuring gallery artists who engage with the construct of architecture in their practices in a variety of ways. Their work explores how our concept of architecture describes physical structures, references the design of organic and man-made systems, and explains plastic concepts. The exhibition examines how each artist adopts a different language of architecture as the source for their creative vision.

Candida Höfer and Alec Soth capture images of opulence and its opposite in their photographs of prestigious and functional architecture. The work of Los Carpinteros, James Casebere, and Laurent Grasso, envisions fantastic and artificial worlds that exist in their imaginations.  Jose Dávila and Iran do Espírito Santo’s use structural materials, including marble and glass, to construct their architectonic sculptures. Antony Gormley considers the architecture of the human body as an adaptable set of forms to comprise abstract sculpture.

Artists featured in this exhibition include: Alejandro CampinsLos CarpinterosJames CasebereDavid ClaerboutJose DávilaIran do Espírito SantoDiana Fonseca QuiñonesAntony GormleyLaurent GrassoCandida HöferIlse D’HollanderJoseph KosuthPeter LiversidgeSam MoyerJulião SarmentoAlec SothFrank Thiel, and James White.
