Hidden within the 18th century interior in Dover Street in Mayfair, something strange is going on. The architecture has been supressed and – look what happens when you do Yoga! This is how you end up – twisted and contorted, with a touch of colour….
American artist Carol Bove (born 1971) twists, turns and folds steel as if it was as soft as paper with her sculptures at David Zwirner in Mayfair – it seems impossible that they are actually steel.
Downstairs is a traditional “White Cube” interior style of architecture to the gallery; while upstairs is more adventurous with grey walls and grey carpeted floors, against which the bright colours of Bove’s sculptures create quiet a contrast as they take project out and over the space.
Splendidly curated and lit, this is an excellent exhibition of Bove’s work.
