MAYA
 Seung Mo Park

BLANK SPACE, 511 W25th St., NYC (#204)

MAYA (generally meaning “illusion” in Sanskrit) is the third phase in a trajectory of Park’s conceptual works dealing with reality, illusion, and existence. Barely possessing materiality of sculpture, or the ideas within them, the idea and conceptualization of MAYA is far from tangible substances.

”SWITCH” Iran do Espírito SantoSean Kelly Gallery, 528 W29th St., NYCThree new bodies of work are included in the exhibition, all of which extend the Brazilian artist’s investigation into the connections between light, form and space. The first gallery contains a new hand-painted, site-specific wall installation. Gallery two contains an installation of the artist’s recent Globe sculptures. Made from the purest solid white marble avail- able, these sculptures take their shapes from glass light coverings that Espírito Santo has been collecting from around the world for the past few years. The main gallery contains a series of reflective “folded” glass sculptures, in which one section of glass is leaned against the wall, abutted against another section placed onto the floor; as such, the glass appears to be bent in half. - thru Apr 28

Robert Smithson - Partially Buried Wood Shed, 1970

Partially Buried Woodshed is a “nonmonument” to the process Smithson calls “de-architecturization”: a dump truck poured earth onto the roof of an old woodshed to the point where its ridge beam cracked. Architecture is the material, and entropy is the instrument.  — Yve-Alain Bois
