Idea Code 16531


British artist Conrad Shawcross produces work that explores subjects at the borders of geometry and philosophy, physics and metaphysics. The importance of science and its history in the Enlightenment, as well as the artist’s relationship with late Romantic ideas, plays a pivotal role in his oeuvre. Sculptural works of bronze and steel – considered “models” of projects that have already been completed or for large-scale works – are presented here. Shawcross explores the both tetrahedron and the dynamic visual potential of harmonics. The works relate to both architecture and the body, and elicit a subtle line between structure and nature, the metaphysical and the molecular.
