“Rubik’s Years” unveiled at Serpentine Gallery’s project space

This new sculpture, which makes its debut at the Serpentine Gallery’s Centre for Possible studies, was unveiled this week. It plays with representing time as a cross between a calendar and a Rubik’s Cube. While I was making ‘Rubik’s Years’, it seemed to take on a life of it’s own, growing quite organically every day: With no set plan beforehand, just an organic  piece forming as I responded to the shape as it grew. Below you can find images and video of the piece on display, or you can visit it at the IMPRINT exhibition until 4 Feb. (More info & review here). The sculpture is displayed alongside one of my date-stamp drawings, ‘Mneme’, and if you look closely you will see the date stamps inside ‘Rubik’s Years’ too.  Read more about the ideas behind it here.
