Sculpture in the City, the City of London’s annual public art programme set amongst iconic architectural landmarks, has announced the initial 17 artworks which will make up this year’s outdoor sculpture park in the Square Mile, with more artists to be revealed soon. Launching on 27 June, the exhibition will include works from internationally renowned artists including Nathan Coley, Elisa Artesero, Nina Saunders and Lawrence Weiner.

Adjacent to St Helen’s churchyard, Salvatore Arancio’s It Was Only a Matter of Time Before We Found the Pyramid and Forced it Open (2017) will be presented at 1 Great St Helen’s. Created under the influence of hypnosis, Arancio’s work forms a sculptural garden of totemic clay sculptures that recall the petrified trees of the ‘Lava Trees State Park’ in Hawaii.

26/6/2019 - SALVATORE ARANCIO | THE CAS ACQUIRES THREE WORKS FOR THE HARRIS MUSEUM IN PRESTON, UK

A ceramic sculpture and two works on paper by Salvatore Arancio have been acquired by the Contemporary Art Society for the Harris Museum in Preston, joining a display of 18th and 19th century landscapes, sculpture, ceramics, historic books, and an important but underused collection of prints from the 16th century to the present day.

The three works are a significant addition to Harris’ collection and will play an important role in their contemporary art programme – Harris Inspired – which will display works in and around the building.

Salvatore Arancio’s work explores beauty and the sublime in nature. He is fascinated by the merging of myth and science, exploring the state of suspension between the real and the fictional through an emphasis on construction and staging. Playing with images, shapes and symbols using found geological illustrations as a starting point, he suggests a sense of human inefficacy against nature, creating juxtapositions that are both beautifully evocative and deeply disquieting.

- ISHMAEL RANDALL WEEKS | BOUNDARY SPACE | LAWRIE SHABIBI, DUBAI

Dubai based gallery, Lawrie Shabibi hosts Ishmael Randall Weeks's solo show Boundary Space, from 22 March until 27 May 2021.

Exhibited together are wall-based, suspended and floor sculptures. Randall Weeks’ floor sculptures respond to spatial relationships of the human body, linking individuality to collective group mentality. Chakana Penetrable, a hinged brass structure, is made from the repetition of simple geometric rectangles and squares based on the symbolic nature of the ‘invented’ Inca Cross mixed with a visual reference to Oiticica’s Nucleos and Jean Baudrillard’s Simulacra and Simulations. The work evokes conversations about boundaries and their subsequent limitations.

The wall-based works include: Formas Básicas (Basic Forms), a large square composition comprising smaller squares that make up a mosaic, incorporating fundamental symbols and motifs drawn from the vocabulary of urbanism and architecture and conceived as a puzzle - its parts assembled in a fragmented manner that can be arranged or rearranged in a multitude of ways; three related works, Tributo a Malevich (Tribute to Malevich), which connect more specifically to Russian Suprematism; the intimate Código Atemporales (Timeless Codes), which like time capsules capture layers of collected soil and materials, laid down like sedimentary plates; and finally, Two-Way Mirror, Biombo/Mashrabiya comprised of hand woven rattan screens framed by wood and metal, recalling the colonial Hispano-Moresque Balcones de Lima, wooden balconies with their roots in Arabic mashrabiya screens.
