David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new sculptures by Carol Bove, marking her third solo show with the gallery. Spanning two floors of the 24 Grafton Street location in London, the exhibition will feature works that relate to the artist’s ongoing series of "collage sculptures" begun in 2016, characterized by square steel tubing that has been crushed and bent into soft folds that belie their material construction, then painted in a uniform color and variably combined with found pieces of scrap metal and a smooth, highly polished steel disk.

Artist ( Description ): 

Carol Bove is known for her assemblages that combine found and made elements. Incorporating a wide range of domestic, industrial, and natural objects, her sculptures, paintings, and prints reveal the poetry of their materials. As the art historian Johanna Burton notes, "Bove brings things together not to nudge associative impulses into free play driven by the unconscious, but rather to conjure a kind of affective tangle that disrupts any singular, historical narrative."¹

Born in 1971 in Geneva to American parents, Bove was raised in Berkeley, California and studied at New York University. The artist joined David Zwirner in 2011. In 2015, The Plastic Unit marked her first solo exhibition at the gallery's London location. On view November through December 2016 at 525 and 533 West 19th Street in New York, David Zwirner presented Polka Dots, a solo show of the artist’s new work.
