Omer Arbel: 44

14 September 2016 - 18 April 2017
Foyer, Level G / Foyers
Free
Booking not required
Designed by Omer Arbel and produced by Bocci, this bespoke light installation is the second site-specific commission for the Lightwell at the Barbican Foyer. Comprised of hundreds of free-poured aluminium forms, the work is suspended from the ceiling by a matrix of thin cables. As the sculpture descends into the space and expands, it punctuates the foyer, engaging with notions of weightlessness and mass, craft and mass-production, entering into dialogue with the Barbican’s concrete surrounds.

Bocci is a Vancouver and Berlin-based design and manufacturing company founded in 2005 under the creative directorship of Omer Arbel, known for sculptural lighting and large scale light installations.
