abstract art, a systems view

Livro do Tempo

with 3 comments

Thank you Artista for bringing my attention to the Lygia Pape exhibition Magnetized Space currently showing at the Serpentine Gallery, until 19 February 2012. Although you don’t seem to much like the show you say that the work Livro do Tempo (or the Book of Time) is the highlight for you. What a highlight! I must admit to being new to this work and now really keen to go and see it.

Here’s a short video of Adrian Searle discussing Pape’s work in general, and Livro do Tempo in particular.

  2. Wow, that is really amazing. I was very surprised that this was made 1961-63… I’d have guessed it much more contemporary than that. Definitely would not have thought this was older than… me! And before I saw the guy walking in front of it as he spoke, I thought each day was about a square inch, maybe 3 square cm… Not the size of dinner plates! Thanks for posting this!
