Nancy Holt's "Mirrors of Light I" on view at Art Basel Unlimited
We are happy to share that Nancy Holt's room-sized installation Mirrors of Light I will be on view next week at Art Basel Unlimited with Sprüth Magers.
Nancy Holt’s artistic investigations navigate the complexities of light as an artistic medium, as a physical reality, and as an aesthetic concept. A central theme for Holt is the way natural and artificial light create new possibilities of seeing.
The room-sized installation Mirrors of Light I plays with the proliferation of light. Illumination from a spotlight is reflected in ten circular mirrors, creating projections that appear to make light material, generating a sensory and conceptual experience of the relationships between viewer, light, and reflection.
Holt's Mirrors of Light I will be on view along with works by Anne Imhof, Barbara Kruger, and Thomas Scheibitz presented by Sprüth Magers at Art Basel Unlimited, from June 13-18, 2023.
