Inverted Spires and Descendant Folds

14 Sep 2016 to 12 Nov 2016

On 14 September Ivorypress presented the exhibitions Inverted Spires and Descendant Folds, by British artist Conrad Shawcross (London, 1977), and Verso, by British artist Cornelia Parker (Cheshire, 1956).

For his first exhibition at Ivorypress, Conrad Shawcross presented 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 series Paradigm 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.
