Bernar Venet: First Solo Exhibition in Singapore

Bernar Venet: First Solo Exhibition in Singapore

Art Plural Gallery, Singapore - 26 September - 24 November 2012


Art Plural Gallery, in collaboration with the Institut Français de Singapour, is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition of acclaimed French artist Bernar Venet in Singapore. The exhibition runs from 26th September to 24th November 2012.

New York-based French artist Bernar Venet has been exploring the notions of indetermination, disorder, chance, and unpredictability with perseverance for decades.


For this exhibition, Bernar Venet will show new sculptural reliefs from his GRIB series, an extension of the original wooden Indeterminate Lines that were developed between 1979 and 1983. The works included in this show were made from 35mm steel plates torch-cut by hand. The technique adds to the unpredictable nature of these ‘scribbles’ and gives these works a rougher character and more accessibility than their predecessors.

Another highlight of the exhibition is the selection of paintings of mathematical equations set in free plastic forms, a perfect synthesis of Art and Mathematics.

Born in France, Bernar Venet is one of the most influential contemporary artists of our time. During the summer of 2011, Bernar Venet unveiled his monumental sculptures in a solo exhibition at the Château de Versailles in France, becoming one of only five contemporary artists to be given the honour.

To date, the number of Venet’s solo exhibitions amounts to no less than 250. His work can be found in more than 70 museums worldwide, including such notable institutions as The Museum of Modern Art (New York), The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York), the Centre Pompidou (Paris), and the Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles).
