Martin Oppel‘s exhibition of works at Galerie Perrotin, Paris. Hernan Bas wrote an accompanying text.
I really love this exhibition. The show is beautiful. The works (mixed media covered with mirror tiles and [showered with] light) are well placed in relation to the other works, the gallery space, and the viewers. This exhibition presents three (actually, five –the first sculpture is of three objects, Gemstones (part I, II and III)) sculptures with strong pull and a fluid, luminous space in-between the objects. On accepting Wischer’s invitation to search for magic, one’s movements are satellite-like – gently falling in the orbit of these sculptures. Angels and Ancestors (part III), which takes the form of a baobab tree, is especially dominant, with a strong gravitational attraction; space seemed to curve about it.
Also on view are a group of photographs titled Intermission. The are some images on the artist’s website.
CriticalMiami has some photos of the gallery hop.
