A dynamic new series of monthly commissions
AboutBloomberg SPACE announces the next commissions in this fast paced programme of exhibitions. Every month, the gallery gives two artists a space each to make new work. From 1-25 April, Bloomberg SPACE presents Jose Dávila (COMMA 03) and Jaime Gili (COMMA 04).
COMMA 03 Mexican artist Jose Dávila (b.1974) is making a dramatic sculptural presence in the front gallery, which appears to be floating like a mirage. Using simple building materials and neon light, he is playing with the idea of a 3D abstraction of a kaleidoscopic effect, suspending this imposing structure from the ceiling.
COMMA 04 Jaime Gili (b.Venezuela 1972) is animating the rear gallery and atrium with a dazzling prismatic display, reminiscent of both a Modern structure and a medieval cathedral. Using coloured vinyl on the interior windows ascending seven floors, he is transforming the space with trademark geometric reflections. Gili combines references to Latin American Modernism with a Venezuelan tradition of mass-reproduced print media, particularly posters, placed within architectural spaces.
