Mindy Solomon Gallery is proud to present Dominique Labauvie’s third solo exhibition in Miami entitled Urban Beings. Presenting a combination of drawings and sculptures, Labauvie explores new terrain in terms of scale and his artistic interpretation of man to his environment. Labauvie writes in a letter to gallerist Mindy Solomon:
“This exhibition is of my most recent work all made in 2018 in Tampa, my Floridian city. Here I have pursued a linear sculpture invested by the space it occupies as well as their gestural quality; the utopic levitation and gravity that they generate; their ferruginous material that carries the memory of liquidity and heat, and also their territory marked by a distinct graphic mapping.
Since the time of antiquity, sculpture generates its own life through spatial incision, even in the state of ruin, fracture, erosion, and or segmentation. Sculpture invents its existence through the rhythm of growth, the multiplication of constructive elements, the successive stages of its construction, and its destruction; and even more intensively when the distance between fiction and reality increase and invention becomes king.
