Barry Flanagan Triple Bill
Though best known for his bronze hare sculptures, Barry Flanagan worked across a diverse range of media. In 1968, Flanagan began experimenting with film and the effects of light projection. In conjunction with the 2020–21 exhibition of Flanagan’s work in the Kasmin Sculpture Garden, three of the artist’s films from this period exploring pataphysical philosophy—or “the science of imaginary solutions,”—formulated by the French playwright and author Alfred Jarry were screened. A trio of his avant-garde works, including a hole in the sea (1969), sandgirl (1970), and bollards project (1970) were on view from December 8–13, 2020.
