Gego

Autobiography of a Line

Lévy Gorvy London
May 25 – August 19 2016

Dominique Lévy is pleased to present Gego: Autobiography of a Line, the second in a pair of exhibitions celebrating the legacy of German-born Venezuelan artist Gego (Gertrud Goldschmidt [1912 – 1994]). Organised in collaboration with the Fundación Gego, Autobiography of a Line is the artist’s first solo exhibition in London, and includes a selection of works spanning her career.

Notably, three monumental sculptures made in the 1970s, which embody the palpable sense of entropic geometry and spatial play for which Gego’s work is internationally recognised, will be on view. These sculptures find their parallel in the artist’s towering wire Chorros, which were displayed in the New York exhibition last autumn. Also in the London installment are a selection of ink drawings on paper and late works that complicate and question the relationship between drawing and sculpture such as Dibujos sin papel (Drawings without paper), Acuarelas (Watercolours), and Tejeduras (Weavings). The exhibition includes loans from the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA), the Museum of Fine Arts Houston (MFAH), and the Fundación Gego.
