British-Caribbean artist Zak Ové unveils new sculpture at Smithson Plaza

About

International real estate developer, Tishman Speyer, in collaboration with Vigo Gallery and Encounter Contemporary, announces the debut exhibition of ‘Autonomous Morris’ by British-Trinidadian artist Zak Ové at the newly re-opened Smithson Plaza.

Standing at approximately 10-feet high, the ‘Autonomous Morris’ sculpture is the largest mask the artist has completed to date and is set to be unveiled to the public on Friday 5th October, during Frieze London, remaining on show in the plaza until early 2019.

Made from deconstructed and collaged vintage car parts welded together to produce a futuristic yet retro, cross-cultural totemic mask, ‘Autonomous Morris’ is a motorised ‘Macco’ – a person who involves themselves in other people’s business for the purpose of gossip and posterity.
