Gagosian | Shio Kusaka
March 28–May 26, 2018
Gagosian is pleased to present new works by Shio Kusaka. This is her first solo exhibition with the gallery and her first in Italy.
While Kusaka’s exhibitions typically feature a combination of abstraction and representation, this is the first to focus exclusively on her abstract work. The ceramics, variations on the form of the vase, are etched with continuous geodesic lines—a process that is simultaneously systematic and intuitive. Minimalist repetitions stretch across the round volumes, echoing the grids of Agnes Martin, or the instruction-based wall drawings of Sol LeWitt, which also embrace the irregularities of the hand-drawn line, creating sinuous, oscillating terrains.
