Richard Serra: "Wake," "Blindspot," "Catwalk" and "Vice-Versa."
NEW YORK • Gagosian Gallery Chelsea • Ongoing
|It was in the 2001 exhibition that Serra used the torus shape in his sculpture for the first time. Simply explained, the torus is a geometrical donut. Serra uses two sections from the torus – the outer spherical section and the inner toroid section. |
Blindspot is composed of six plates, three spheroids and three toroids. Wake is composed of five pairs of plates and occupies the largest space in the gallery. Each plate is a double torus, which has a profile of a vertically flattened >S. These modules are juxtaposed to form pairs of closed forms measuring 14’ high, 48’ long and 6’ wide. Vice-Versa is an open form created from two torus sections. Catwalk (Reverse Camber) is a plate, which bridges the elevational cut flanking the incline section of the gallery floor.
