Daniel Silver: Human Activity. London Mithraeum, Bloomberg SPACE
Posted 17 July 2019
25 July 2019 - 11 January 2020
Daniel Silver is the recipient of the latest contemporary art commission for the London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE. Opening 25 July, Silver's installation features a set of monumental figurative works that speak to his fascination with the psychology and history of sculpture-making as well as his profound interest in ancient cultures and archaeology.
The 3.5-metre high works which comprise Human Activity originated as small clay objects made by Silver whilst observing a dancer in his studio. Sculpted by the artist to capture momentary postures and attitudes of the body in movement, a number of these diminutive figures have since been reconsidered and scaled in metalized polystyrene for the Bloomberg SPACE gallery.
