INEXHAUSTIBLE PLACES

GALLERY 203

Heidegger wrote in Art and Space that we must “learn to recognize that things themselves are places and do not merely belong to a place.” In this gallery, there are three impossible places. Cristina Iglesias’s sculptures suggest an idea of hospitality and private refuge, in this case under a structure of alabaster, perhaps the warmest of all minerals. Bilbao Circle by Richard Long is made with fragments of slate and inspires us to imagine a ritual setting, perhaps a cromlech or the circle representing an invisible community. To Lee Ufan, the canvas is the place where the vibrations of the mind, body, and world converge in the guise of lines.
