The challenge is always to use materials in a new and different way, and make them convey meaning and portray form in a manner that has not previously been seen.
Andrew Rogers at the Venice Biennale
Venice Biennale 2017, Palazzo Mora: Andrew Rogers will unveil eight large bronze and stainless steel sculptures in a Venice Biennale collateral event.
Rogers’ installation “We Are” is a significant work with great provenance. It is related to sculptures in prominent public and private collections around the world.
In the lead up to the unveiling, The Auburn Girl reports about the exhibition:
“We Are”, the latest sculpture work by Andrew Rogers, will be presented on Thursday, May 11th as a collateral exhibition at the Venice Biennale at the 57th International Art Exhibition.
Composed of eight large bronze and stainless steel sculptures, this installation is a further iteration of the Rogers series entitled “I Am”. Presented in part by the Global Art Affairs Foundation, the work will be visible from May 9 to November 26, 2017 at Palazzo Mora in Venice.
Rogers’ practice explores human emotion through the light and organic shapes that define his sculptural works as well as the importance of the individual in influencing change. The artist sees the works of the “I Am” series and its derivative “We Are” as a metaphor for the dichotomy of human nature.
