Lévy Gorvy is pleased to present Enrico Castellani | Sculpture, an exhibition of aluminium cast wall sculptures by Enrico Castellani (1930–2017), traveling from the gallery’s London location. Opening 31 August 2021, this will be the first presentation in France of the sculptures that preoccupied the late Italian master during his later years.
Completed between the years of 2006 to 2013, the works in this exhibition suggest important links to the artist’s earliest experiments in metal, and evince his skill in pushing the boundaries of materiality and space. From the early 1960s onward, Castellani experimented with brass, zinc, bronze, and other plastic or ductile materials capable of being modelled for small groups of works. The catalyst for his late aluminium series was an abiding interest in mirrored surfaces and his experiments using glass with a silver interior.
