About

Castor is pleased to present Figures of Everything, the debut London solo show by Latvian artist Indrikis Gelzis. Gelzis’ distinctive wall-based sculptures reference minimal abstraction, the method of displaying data in infographics and ideas of pareidolia.

At an initial glance, the works constructed from welded metal with wood veneer and fabric could be seen as flattened, painterly constructions contained within their own frame hung on the wall. Up close, a complex series of interwoven steel and reinforcement bars dart in and out of one another, as if welded by the trail of a pencil dragged through the air. Composed digitally through free-hand drawing in Cinema 4D, a program typically used by architects and designers, the pieces are then transcribed to paper before the physical construction commences.

Gelzis is interested in information as wealth and sees the structural language of graphic statistics as a way of drawing conclusions and predicting data. The fabric acts as a dressing to the pieces, tailor-made, sleeve-like and slumped, suggesting reading of body language, gesture or emotions. Gelzis’ work could be seen as a window or mirror, reflective of the human experience yet non-specific and open to each and all.

Castor is thrilled to present the first exhibitions at the new-look gallery following a major expansion over the summer. The gallery is now set across two interlinking spaces having taken over a neighbouring unit, almost doubling the total exhibition space.
