Gego: Line as Object

“Sculpture, three-dimensional forms of solid material. Never what I do!” Gertrude (“Gego”) Goldschmidt (1912-94) instead explored the possibilities of line as object. Without the opaque skin of sculpture Gego’s hollow forms respond to the conditions of their environment, highlighting the relationship between body, object and space. In an exhibition of geometric forms that explore how line can project volume, mass and planes – properties often associated primarily with sculpture – The Henry Moore Institute seeks to reestablish Gego’s link with the art form.
