14 September - 12 November 2016. Ivorypress presents the exhibitions Inverted Spires and Descendant Folds, by British artist Conrad Shawcross (London, 1977).
For his first exhibition at Ivorypress, Conrad Shawcross will present a sculptural show of bronze and steel works. Considered ‘models’ – some of projects that have already been completed and others for large-scale works – this line of work covers two areas of research: Shawcross’s constant exploration of the tetrahedron as mosaic in his seriesParadigm and the visually powerful Harmonics, from his series Manifold.
Installed as a sculptural field, the works approach the relationship between architecture and the body, tracing a subtle line between structure and nature; the metaphysical and the molecular.
