Gustavo Godoy‘s Fast Formal Object: Big White, opened last Saturday at Honor Fraser Gallery, and I’m happy to say that I was there for the opening. The first thing I noticed when I came in was big and white. Everything was white from the walls to the actual sculpture, even the event postcard. The sculpture is big and takes a big amount of the space in the room. Once you go in the room, the only space left is to walk around the big sculpture and little by little the details of the piece unfold as you maneuver your way around it.
It’s hard to say which way is the front or the back but I kept wanting to climb the object, as I saw what it looked like stairs everywhere. After a while it just feels like the piece is moving. As hard and technical as it looked, there was this undeniable organic and dynamic nature to the work that was both fascinating and beautiful. It is definitely worth checking out as the images do little justice to the Big White.
