Formation / Reformation – Exhibition by Jonathan Roson
Presenting his first London exhibition, Formation / Reformation showcases Jonathan Roson’s collection of work of from past to present. This show explores different types of materials and surfaces and how they have been reformed.
About the Exhibition
The artworks in this exhibition reflect Jonathan’s interest in the (in)stability of sculptural forms and in particular the emergence of firstly, a new form that has no formal antecedents (e.g. Groundless Grid 2017, ’88’ 2014); secondly a new form produced by the reformation of a pre-existing form (e.g. Folded Door 2007-15, Ideograms 2017); thirdly, a new form produced by memory images of pre-existing form (e.g. Marble Mattress 2014) and fourthly, a new form produced on the surface of a pre-existing form (e.g. Machine Gestures 2015). The creation of the artworks in this exhibition have opened a way forward for Jonathan’s artistic practice concerning the discovery of new artificial forms within pre-existing natural forms.
