Conrad Shawcross

This major solo exhibition brings together brand new works by the artist that typically combines his interest in sculpture and science, and demonstrates the intellectual rigour, technical dexterity and intense sense of drama associated with Shawcross’s work.


The new works draw upon quantum mechanics and musical theory, especially the science of harmonics. One of the new works, Light Perpetual, consists of five caged machines, each producing loops of light in space. “They are visual, sculptural, transcriptions of specific chords that sound good to us and which also happen to have a mathematical simplicity.” – Conrad Shawcross.
