Bernar Venet: We Were There !
The First LA exhibition of world famous French artist Bernar Venet was opening on July 20 at ACE Gallery. We were there to enjoy this unique moment !
The exhibition is on view through September at ACE Gallery both locations Beverly Hills and Los Angeles.
Bernar Venet is presenting his GRIB series, an extension of his wooden Indeterminate Lines, which he began displaying as reliefs between 1979 and 1983.The GRIBs act as living drawings that become monumental through the act of physically transferring them from 2D drawings to 3D steel structures.
Bernar Venet recalls : "My sculptures are self-referential in the sense that they tell their own story, the story of their elaboration. In this way they stand apart from the classical object that hides its sculptural identity and ‘speaks of something else’.”
