This curated route around Soho and Mayfair explores a selection of exciting contemporary sculpture exhibitions.
We will start at Goodge Street where Girjesh Kumar Singh presents his second solo show at gallery rosenfeld. Kumar Singh exhibits a collection of moving and compelling sculptures made from broken bricks scavenged from destroyed homes in the area he resides in.
Next, we will head southwest towards Pace Gallery on Hanover Square, a five-minute walk from Oxford Circus. Here, the curator Alfred Pacquement brings together five decades of work from Lee Ufan and Claude Viallat. This exhibition celebrates the artist’s commitment to abstraction as a means of engaging with philosophical ideas of time, space, and matter, all themes relevant to my personal practice.
We will then wind down through Soho, passing Chinatown, a good opportunity to stop for a brief lunch (I love Toyko Diner) before heading to White Cube Mason’s Yard to see ‘Isamu Noguchi: The Earth, This Passage.’ It will be a pleasure to see the collaborative set designs imagined by Noguchi and choreographer Martha Graham, made over a period of three decades.
The route will finish with a short walk to the Thomas Dane Gallery to see ‘Broken’, a collection of works from the Brazilian artist, Alexandre da Cunha. This is an opportunity to explore Cunha’s reflections on construction, architecture, and modernism. Once completed, it is a ten-minute walk to Green Park where you can sit under a tree.
