VOLUME VS. VOID
Marion Friedmann Gallery presents 4 artists working on the intersection of design and sculpture. For VOLUME VS VOID, we selected sculptural and design works that play with the notion of volume, void and space. Volume has the power to influence void in a physical, as well as in our emotional ‘self’-space. Volume enhances the perception of space. Volume delivers objects that give pleasure in a void we might experience in such challenging times, like ours.
As soon as such a surprising object as Gisela Stiegler’s ‘Columns’ engage with space, it completely changes. Jorge Yázpik’s sculptures famously play with volume and negative space within the piece itself. As one of the most important contemporary artists of Mexico today, Yázpik carves his stone sculptures having the duality of volume and void in mind.
Julio Martínez Barnetche presents light-sculptures: a technical brass and wood structure holds a beautifully carved quartz and...amber piece and lets them dance in the air to create flickering shadows through the light source directed at it. Thierry Jeannot presents two lamps from his recent Transmutation collection, where star shaped chandeliers illuminate our shperes like satellites. His light fixtures are pieces of art, where plastic waste is the principal protagonist.
