Omer Arbel: Particles For The Built World
Surrey Art Gallery, Surrey, BC - Apr 13 – Jun 16
Based in Vancouver and Berlin, Omer Arbel is a designer and sculptor acclaimed for his experimental approach to his profession and for his concept-driven research into materials. This exhibition features his unconventional use of concrete, which he has poured into fabric rather than plywood moulds, resulting in rounded organic rather than rectilinear architectural forms. Cutaways into fabric-moulded concrete along with tall pillars in the shape of inverted trumpets provide insights into Arbel’s working methods.
