A Ribbon in Space 28 Sep 2017 – 20 Dec
Level Two

‘Like a ribbon in space’ is how Jonathan Glancey quoted Zaha Hadid’s own description of the curves and planes of MAXXI, the art and architecture museum she designed for the Flaminio district in Rome.

Liam Leslie’s sensitive eye presents a building that houses art, as art rather than architecture. Concrete becomes abstract, earthly becomes ethereal, and all sense of scale disappears; these photographs recall the radical compositions of Hadid’s hero from the world of 20th century art, Kazimir Malevich.

This series of eight astutely captured images were hand printed by the artist using traditional photographic techniques and has been curated and presented by Velorose Gallery in London.
