DESCRIPTION

For the second exhibition at its new gallery in Mayfair, the gallery will present an exhibition of work by American minimalist artist Fred Sandback (1943 – 2003) who has been shown by David Zwirner since 2004. Featured will be a selection of important sculptures and drawings, spanning the 1970s to the early 2000s, exemplifying the scope of the artist’s influential career. Though he used metal rod and elastic cord early in his artistic practice, Sandback soon dispensed with those materials to employ acrylic yarn to create works that address their physical surroundings. By stretching yarn horizontally, vertically, or diagonally at different lengths, scales, and in varied configurations, the artist developed a singular body of work that elaborated on the phenomenological experience of space and volume with unwavering consistency and ingenuity.
