SOLID STATE
concrete art by
DAVID UMEMOTO & HARRY MORGAN

22 March to 14 April

Modern Shapes Gallery
Kloostertsraat 16
2000 Antwerpen

The stairs lead to a void, the walls rise to nothing, the ceilings seem useless. The work of David Umemoto exudes mystery, stimulates the imagination, but at the same time gives a sense of reflective discipline. In the twilight zone between sculpture and architecture, these pieces evoke the feeling of temporary buildings and monuments.

Harry Morgan's work is known for its unusual marrying of materials and experimental approach to traditional process. Referencing ancient techniques and histories such as Venetian glassblowing and Brutalist architecture. He challenges the connotations behind the materials. Despite being composed of the same elements, glass and concrete appear as conflicting materials. Glass reflects ambiguity and intangibility. In sharp contrast, concrete is brutally physical.
