Upcoming gallery exhibition

A New Nature

4 February – 3 April 2022
White Cube Bermondsey

White Cube Bermondsey is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Isamu Noguchi (1904–88), produced in collaboration with The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum, New York. Titled ‘A New Nature’, the show brings together several bodies of work that build organic environments from industrial methods and materials. The centrepiece will be a presentation of Noguchi’s Ceiling and Waterfall from the lobby of 666 Fifth Avenue, New York (1957), an undulating aluminium ceiling and a stainless steel louvered fountain wall that were permanently removed in 2019. Two ‘clouds’ of Noguchi’s Akari light sculptures and a complete set of the 26 galvanised steel works will provide further context on the artist’s interest in making his work subject to nature’s rhythms by inserting it into the flow of time. Five different configurations of Octetra, the modular, geometric play system he developed in the 1960s based on Buckminster Fuller’s theories about the fundamental structures found in nature, will be featured throughout.
