Nanda Vigo

30 October – 22 December 2015

Sperone Westwater is pleased to announce a solo exhibition by Nanda Vigo, the artist’s first in the United States. Vigo is widely recognized as a pioneer of contemporary Italian sculpture, installation and architecture. This exhibition features a selection of early vintage works from the artist’s influential Cronotopi series (1963–1969) alongside Trigger of the Space, a mirrored installation from 1974.

Vigo’s work is characterized by an attention to the phenomenological effects of light and space. As the etymology of their titles suggests, the artist’s Cronotopi works are designed to confound and enhance the viewer’s sensory perception of time, space and light. These minimal rectangular structures of glass, aluminum and neon incorporate transparent, opaque and glazed surfaces which reflect and diffract light. For Vigo, the immaterial play of light and reflection that results from these sculptures is the essence of the work.
