Thursday 15 June | Sorel Etrog Finissage and Screening
'The film 'Spiral' was not scripted but iconically drafted, image by image. The structural theme of 'Spiral' presents the oscillation of two simultaneous and complementary cones of spirals, constituting the synchronique worlds of birth and death.'
- Marshall McLuhan, 1975
In conjuction with the finissage of the exhibition 'Sorel Etrog: Doors open from the inside only', Edel Assanti presented a screening of the artist's 1974 film 'Spiral.'
'Doors open from the inside only' was the artist's first solo exhibition in Europe in nearly 40 years, staged in collaboration with The Estate of Sorel Etrog. Through a selection of bronze sculptures, paintings and drawings, accompanied by artists' books and archive materials, the exhibition presented a survey of Etrog’s engagement with Existentialism at the peak of his career.
'Sorel Etrog: Doors open from the inside only' was on view at Edel Assanti from 28 April - 16 Jun 2017.
