Sicardi Gallery presents Extensa by Pedro Tyler
For his second solo exhibition at Sicardi Gallery, Pedro Tyler transforms metal rulers into installations that connect the sculptural object with the history of philosophy. The exhibition opens with a reception on March 24, from 6-8 p.m. with the artist. Tyler will lead a walk-through of the exhibition at 12:30 p.m. on March 26.
Tyler looks to the intersections of philosophy and religion, sculpture and knowledge. With his installation Principio y Fin (Beginning and End), Tyler bends sections of metal measuring tapes, turning them into the symbol for infinity. Connecting each piece, the linked chain emerges from the wall and splits into several strands, which connect to the ceiling.
The exhibition also includes several sculptures, which continue the artist's ongoing investigation of systems of measurement as metaphors for the immensity of the universe.
