Mariko Mori:
Cycloid V

for UAP • New York 

This site-specific sculpture was created by internationally recognized performance, video and installation artist Mariko Mori’s in collaboration with UAP New York for the Sean Kelly Gallery in New York, utilizing new fabrication methods for the artist. 

The exhibition titled ‘Invisible Dimension’ included the monumental Cycloid V — a large-scale, abstract organic form, wrapping the internal column of the gallery.

To achieve the precise organic form, the sculpture was hand-formed by rolling and hammering sheet metal, with seams fully welded and hand-polished to achieve a perfectly smooth surface. The sculpture was then hand painted with a signature paint coating.
