“I consider space to be a material. The articulation of space
has come to take precedence over other concerns. I attempt to
use sculptural form to make space distinct.”
– Richard Serra
Richard Serra has filled Gagosian’s 2500 square foot New York Gallery with two recent monumental works for his current show “Junction/Cycle”. Both “Junction” (2011) and “Cycle” (2010) are winding compositions of 13 foot tall curved and leaning slabs of weatherproof steel. Together, they transform the vast gallery into a maze of corridors, hidden clearings and unexpected exits.
