Two Sculptures by Ursula von Rydingsvard

News - 18/04/2019

The Philadelphia Museum of Art has installed two monumental sculptures by Ursula von Rydingsvard. Bronze Bowl with Lace (2013–14, cast 2017–18) and Elegantka II (2013–14, cast 2016) will be on view over the course of the next year in the Anne d’Harnoncourt Sculpture Garden. Standing between 10 and 20 feet tall, these sculptures convey the artist’s complex approach to scale, material and technique. Bronze Bowl with Lace was cast from a full-scale cedar model. The top of the bronze is perforated and delicately lit from within, its soft amber light illuminating the evening sky. Elegantka II is a urethane resin cast of another full-scale cedar model. The spiral form undulates from its narrow base through a knotty midsection and into its voluminous crown. The Museum’s presentation of this artist’s work coincides with the exhibition Ursula von Rydingsvard: The Contour of Feeling presented at The Fabric Workshop and Museum, guest-curated by Mark Rosenthal, which focuses on von Rydingsvard’s artistic development since 2000. Many of the works have not been exhibited in the United States before. *
