Victoria Miro Gallery II
16 Wharf Road, London N1 7RW
Victoria Miro presents an exhibition of new sculptures in steel and cast bronze by Conrad Shawcross. Considered "maquettes" - some for realised commissions, and others propositions for works on a monumental scale - this body of work focusses on two lines of enquiry: Shawcross's ongoing explorations of the four-sided tetrahedron as a tessellating form in his Paradigm series, and the dynamic visual potential of harmonics in his Manifold works. Installed as a singular sculptural field, the works bear relationships to both architecture and the body, and elicit a subtle line between structure and nature, the metaphysical and the molecular.
