Art Basel Encounters
Jose Dávila, Homage to the Square, 2019
Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre
For Encounters, we will present a dynamic installation of sixteen suspended kinetic mobile sculptures by Jose Dávila as a single installation which continues the artist’s ongoing series entitled Homage to the Square. The multicolored sculptures will hang overhead at varying heights, enabling visitors to walk under and among the gently moving objects. Homage to the Square reflects on the legacy and influence of Bauhaus artist, Josef Albers and his renowned theories on the perception and interaction of colour through a mathematically determined format of squares. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus school founded in Weimer, Germany, Dávila brings Albers work to life as he animates the square into a three-dimensional object that is constantly in motion.
