Presenting for the third time a major solo show at Galería OMR in Mexico City, Artur Lescher transforms the gallery's white cube space into new cosmic energy that is inspired by the idea of 'asterisms'. Asterisms are prominent patterns or clusters of stars that, viewed from Earth's sky, appear to form a recognizable geometric figure. Unlike constellations, they have not gained official recognition by the scientific community. This celestial space is indecipherable and immeasurable.
Since the beginning of his artistic practice, at the age of 22, São Paulo artist Artur Lescher has been working with geometric shapes and with the compositional relationship they create when assembled in dialogue with specific architectural spaces. In this exhibition, the artist presents a series of pieces created specifically for the gallery space. The main installation is made up of various geometric shapes; cylinders and cones of bronze, wire and stainless steel are mixed in a unique set – they disappear into each other to become a new form, impossible to describe by the lexicon available in geometry and architecture.
