Jean-Michel Othoniel: Monumental Sculpture

Jean-Michel Othoniel creates forms that are inherently poetic by rooting his works in abstractness and contemplation. In this solo exhibition at Galerie Perrotin, Hong Kong, the artist has collaborated with a Feng Shui Master in determining the forms and colors of his sculptures. As an outcome of the artist’s psychology, the individualism and the sentiments invested in the forms originate in human life generally. While Feng Shui is a Chinese philosophical system of harmonizing the human existence with the surrounding environment, the idea conforms to the artistic approach of Othoniel, who constantly seeks to relate his works with regard to nature, to the world and to the space they inhabit. The rotation of the beads is the gesture and movement of these monumental glass and aluminum sculpture in the gallery room, through which the sculptor brings out the intrinsic beauty and variability of the knots he invented.
