Alex Hartley: After You Left


A Gentle Collapsing II, 2016. Site-specific sculptural installation, Victoria Miro.
"An exhibition of new work by the British artist, including a major architectural intervention in the gallery’s waterside garden. Thoughts of modernism and its legacy, as well as Romantic ideas of the ruin and the picturesque are conjured in these new works. While modernist architecture has been a constant touchstone for Hartley, amplified in recent work is a sense of narrative, of the viewer having arrived at a situation of ambiguous cause and uncertain outcome. ..."
