David Zwirner is pleased to present new sculptures by American artist Carol Bove (b. 1971) at the gallery’s Hong Kong location. Spanning two floors, this exhibition marks the New York–based artist’s fourth solo presentation with the gallery and her first in Asia. The exhibition follows her participation in this year’s Venice Biennale, which featured a focused selection of recent work, and a two-person exhibition currently on view at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Known for works that incorporate found and constructed elements with a unique formal, technical, and conceptual inventiveness, Bove stands as one of the foremost contemporary artists working today. For this exhibition, Bove expands upon her ongoing series of “collage sculptures,” compositions of various types of steel, begun in 2016. These works are characterized by square steel tubing that has been crushed and manipulated, painted in vibrant color, and variously combined with found pieces of scrap metal and, often, a smooth, highly polished steel disk. Playing with surface texture and pushing the limits of steel’s physicality, the artist’s new work continues her exploration of form and process, including folding and crushing steel into more complex compositions and rendering the material with an almost fabric- or clay-like, supple finish.
卓納畫廊榮幸呈現美國藝術家卡羅爾·波維（Carol Bove, b. 1971）的全新雕塑作品。展覽将在卓納畫廊香港空間舉辦，標誌著藝術家在亞洲的首次個展。此次展覽前，波維刚於今年參加了第58屆威尼斯雙年展。波維的創作有趣而精準地與材料和造型展開互動。本次展出的作品來自波維的「拼貼雕塑」系列（collage sculptures），這一系列始於2016年，至今仍在持續創作中。這些雕塑集合物由不同種類與尺寸的鋼材拼合而成，糅合了多個時期與領域的理論與藝術史指涉，如同芝加哥意象派在1960年代集合了各種風格與技法的拼貼作品。為了製作出這些極富動感的雕塑，藝術家擠壓、折疊或彎折不鏽鋼管，再涂上鮮艷的塗料，將通常印象中堅硬而笨重的鋼材轉化為看似柔軟而輕巧的材質，呈現出有如泥土、織物或褶皺紙張的效果。
