James Turrell: Circular Glass

Häusler Contemporary, Zürich

permanent installation

Artist: James Turrell

Häusler Contemporary is pleased to exclusively present an installation by James Turrell (*1943, Los Angeles, lives in Flagstaff, US) from the new series of «Circular Glasses». Conceived for an everyday architectural environment, these spectacular works enable a visual and sensory experience of light as was previously reserved for larger installations by the artist.

Installation Views

The unique pieces in this series are akin to the «Small Glass» series from 2016, which has attracted great attention from collectors and a broad public. The «Circular Glasses» too are individually programmed using the latest LED technology. Their physical structure relates to Turrell's «Shallow Space Constructions» from the late 1960s and early 1970s. With this new series, the artist continues his exploration of technological possibilities in connection with sensory practices, inviting viewers to a meditative experience.

The installation can be visited during regular gallery hours or by appointment.
