Jonny Farrow — a fine word, galaxy

Please join us for the closing celebration this Wednesday, in the Project Space at the Arts Center of New York University Abu Dhabi.

Come and meet and walk/talk through the show with the artist.

The exhibition will remain on view through 30 March.

a fine word, galaxy features sculptural works such as Spiral and X (both cast bronze), and Swing/Inclination (cast iron), which present the artist’s fascination with tension, suspension and time, and how simple motion can mark territory. Also, works such as the sound installation Frequency Shift, startle listeners into the present moment, never quite allowing the mind to wander too far—another form of marking territory. Hover/Nadir, a bell/bowl-like shape, also cast bronze, is inspired by Farrow’s interest in the potentials of forms and the thwarting of expectations that a simple re-presentation can offer—neither bell nor bowl, a curved surface for the eyes to follow.
