The exhibition was the first large-scale survey in Europe by highly acclaimed American artist Ursula von Rydingsvard at YSP 05.04.14 - 04.01.15. The exhibition, the artist’s most extensive to date, illustrated the full scope of von Rydingsvard’s diverse practice, including more than 40 works of drawing and sculpture made over the last two decades.
One of America’s most inventive and individual artists, with work in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art, among others, von Rydingsvard has evolved a distinctive, highly personal sculptural language that has become synonymous with cedar, the wood that lies at the heart of her practice. The exhibition featured wall-mounted works, monolithic structures and other complex forms, most of which were meticulously assembled from 4” x 4” cedar beams.
