This Autumn, we're treated to two Serra exhibitions: Drawings, over at Gagosian Davies Street and NJ-2, Rounds: Equal Weight, Equal Measure and Rotate, at Gagosian Britannia Street. Both exhibitions are made of entirely new work: fifteen new drawings at Davies street and three large sculptures over at Britannia Street.
Often occupying public spaces or permanently installed in a museum setting, Serra's oeuvre blurs the line between art and architecture, and thrives in interacting and reacting to its environment. In the 60s and 70s, his awe-inspiring yet minimal forms signified a new look for the modern cityscape which complemented the new, hard lines of steel skyscrapers and industrial chic. Finesse springs to mind as a good way to describe Serra's sculptures, which seem to possess an effortless balance.
