Chilean artist Ivan Navarro has just completed his new installation at the Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York City. He has created fluorescent lighted sculptures that represent the floor plans of twelve of the world’s best known skyscrapers.
The buildings were chosen because of the inspiration they provided the artist, through their innovations in design, engineering, and the ambition that drove them to spread western development around the globe. The installations represent the negative space of the building, allowing viewers to look into the infinite abyss inside the buildings.
He has also incorporated powerful words which provided inspiration to him throughout the development of the art.
Hypebeast have written a very insightful post surrounding the gallery, including some great photography from the exhibition itself.
