Ugo Rondinone / Primal

Aug 29 – Oct 19, 2013

The exhibition presents a group of thirty unique bronze-cast horse sculptures, continuing Rondinone’s preoccupation with archetypical images taken both from classical art history and primitive art. The gallery space will be transformed by plywood flooring covering the entire exhibition, and the horses scattered around in it. These unique sculptures were modeled in clay and molded by the artist, then cast in bronze and left raw. The works on display in “Primal” follow the series of bronze cast bird sculptures shown in 2012 in the exhibitions “primitive” at the Common Guild, Glasgow and Art Unlimited, Basel.
