Thomas Lendvai: 10 is a physically immersive installation constructed from industrial materials including sheetrock and wooden beams that divides and alters the gallery space into four quadrants. Upon entering the gallery, the viewer engages in a participatory experience—having no privileged perspective of the sculpture—and only apprehends the full object by walking around the piece and viewing it from various vantage points. Built in the tradition of Minimalism, the sculpture exists within the construct of space and time, and exists independent of any historical implications or narrative.

 

Through this site-responsive work, Lendvai transforms everyday construction materials into a large-scale sculptural experience that celebrates the intrinsic and elemental value inherent within the materials. 

 

Thomas Lendvai: 10 is the gallery’s tenth exhibition, and its first solo exhibition. Summer gallery hours are Thursday thru Sunday 1-6 pm, and by appointment through August 23.
