Chillida: Rhythm-Time-Silence, Ordovas, 25 Savile Row London W1, until 23rd April 2016
This exhibition comes to London from the gallery’s pop-up space in New York where it formed the inaugural show. It examines through the three large-scale pieces on show the Chillida’s fascination with the concept of space as material. The sculptures are made from corten steel – reflecting the blacksmithing heritage of his native Basque country – and granite.
I can only concur with Pilar Ordovas who says “My intention is to continue to increase international awareness of his major innovations in the field of sculpture and serve to introduce his work to new generations of audiences, scholars and collectors.”
