Ilan Averbuch: The Lily Pond at Nancy Hoffman Gallery, New York

September 7, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - October 21, 2017 @ 6:00 pm

Ilan Averbuch: The Lily Pond
Nancy Hoffman Gallery
New York, NY
September 7 – October 21, 2017
Opening Reception: September 7, 6 – 8pm

The Lily Pond is an immersive installation, a visual metaphor of an aquatic environment. The installation comprises 14 sculptures displayed on large recycled granite millstones, dispersed throughout the gallery. The stones are raised off the ground on a steel stem, creating a field of seemingly floating round platforms reminding us of large lily pads on the surface of a pond. Small sculptures in steel, stone and bronze occupy the surface of the lily pads, while a large stone boat raised on steel stilts floating in mid-air, becomes the mental vessel that guides the visitor through the exhibition.

The installation is accompanied by large drawings, referring to the imagery of the sculptures. The drawings, like the sculptures, allude to history, culture, landscape, dream, policy, discourse or human aspiration.

The outdoor courtyard will feature Skirts and Pants (After Duchamp), an earlier large wood and glass sculpture, of a group of five symbolic images intertwined in an endless mechanical choreography.
