zeros sways to spy’s hypnotic choreography in beijing, china

 

A hypnotic choreography of nine colossal inner tubes dwarfs visitors in SpY’s latest kinetic installation, ZEROS. Following the unveiling of his previous large-scale artwork Blankets in Chengdu, China, the Spanish artist takes to the Times Art Museum in Beijing, suspending a series of vast black volumes that gently undulate amid a red glow and engulf observers into constrained viewpoints and navigation patterns. The solemn motions of the piece evoke the image of an enormous animal that shifts ponderously, in a visual and spatial experience dominated by the intense contrast of the block shapes against the harsh light.

Together the artistic landscapes spark contemplation and convey the fleeting passage of moments in time.
