Lee Ufan: Relatum – Stage
Where: Serpentine Gallery | Kensington Gardens | London W2 3XA
When: 6 Feb 2018 to 29 Jul 2018
Artist Lee Ufan brings new public sculpture to Kensington Gardens.
‘The work of art is a representation of the stage.’ Lee Ufan
The Serpentine continues its exploration of public art with a sculptural commission by artist Lee Ufan, to be installed outside the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens in early February 2018.
In 2010, the Serpentine brought new sculpture to Kensington Gardens for the first time in 35 years, presenting Anish Kapoor’s Turning the World Upside Down, in collaboration with The Royal Parks. This tradition continued with Fischli & Weiss’s Rock on Top of Another Rock in 2013, Bertrand Lavier’s Fountain in 2014, Michael Craig-Martin’s Transience in 2015 and Alex Katz’s sculpture, Ada (Wind Vane), in 2016. In its subtle interplay of elements and setting, Ufan’s new work, Relatum – Stage (2018), builds on ideas that permeated previous artworks in the series, as well as the artist’s own ongoing exploration of materiality and difference.
