A pillar of contemporary art in the Swiss resort since 2005, Patricia Low Contemporary reopens with an exhibition of new paintings by Berlin-based multidisciplinary artist Richard Kennedy on the lower ground floor and three sculptures by British Turner Prize-winner Antony Gormley on the ground floor.
The three Antony Gormley sculptures offer a quiet counterpoint to Kennedy’s vibrantly colourful abstract canvases.
Hive I (2006) is a suspended sculpture made up of steel polygons that describes a human form.
Limn II, from 2011, is composed of regular polygons in stainless steel, bound together in a delicate, cellular structure.
Subject (2012), meanwhile, is part of Gormley’s Massive Blockworks series. A study in pose, and composed of cantilevered, stacked and propped rectilinear units, this figure is found kneeling, with arms by its sides.
In their particular ways, the sculptures speak to different aspects of Gormley’s longstanding consideration of bodies and their relation to space.
