Lisson Gallery opens solo exhibition of Brazilian sculptor Sérgio Camargo

Lisson Gallery presents from thursday (May 21st) a new solo show of Brazilian sculptor Sérgio Camargo (1930-90).

“Mármore” is his first exhibition in London for over 30 years and has been conceived in association with the artist’s estate and Galeria Raquel Arnaud, São Paulo.

Internationally celebrated for his wall-based reliefs, public sculptures and architectural commissions, this exhibition focuses on Camargo’s works in white and black marble (mármore), including small-scale tabletop works and large freestanding pieces.

Simultaneously exploring rationality and chaos, his characteristic three-dimensional constructions of geometric shapes are governed by a self-imposed rigour in regards to colour, material and form. Although distinctly minimalist in order and means, these objects – assembled from cylindrical, cuboid and ovoid motifs – are equally generous and expansive in their study of volume, light and space.

“Mármore” is shown until July 4th at Lisson Gallery: Bell Street , Londres. More information available here.
