A special geometric series created by renowned British sculptor Phillip King during his stay in Taiwan will be displayed in a two-part exhibition in London between June 11 and July 26.
Tunis-born King is one of the British pioneers who influenced the New Art movement. He is the 2010 recipient of the Lifetime Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award, and holds an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Cambridge.
The former President of the Royal Academy in the U.K. traveled to Taiwan in 2013 under the invite of the Tung Ho Steel Cultural Foundation and the National Culture and Arts Foundation. Using steel provided by Tung Ho, King created a series of colorful sculptures reflecting his time spent in Taiwan.
Within his three-month stay, he created "At Rest,” "Dunstable Reel,” "High Sky and Bling,” "Ring Reel,” and "Lash,” all of which will be exhibited in a summer exhibition in central London.
An indoor exhibition featuring his smaller works will be held at the Thomas Dane Gallery from June 11 through July 26, while his public sculptures will be exhibited outdoors at the Ranelagh Gardens from June 25 through July 25. The exhibitions are also timed to honor the artist's 80th birthday.
