As if 2013 wasn't already a huge year for James Turrell, with three simultaneous retrospectives in the US (Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (on view until April 6, 2014), and Museum of Fine Arts, Houston), he's already beginning 2014 on a strong note. His new exhibition at Pace Gallery in London (his sixth with Pace ever and his first solo show at the London location) has the artist revealing two never-before-seen works from the "Wide Glass" series, staged in site-designed chambers on the ground floor of the gallery.
In addition to these, two new "Tall Glass" works are part of the exhibition, all continuing Turrell's exploration of technology's connection to the sensory experience. Turrell says, “I am really interested in the qualities of one space sensing another. It is like looking at someone looking. Objectivity is gained by being once removed. As you plumb a space with vision, it is possible to ‘see yourself see’. This seeing, this plumbing, imbues space with consciousness.”
View the new exhibition from February 7 to April 5, 2014 at Pace Gallery in London (6 Burlington Gardens, W1S 3ET).
