“Bosco Sodi: Perfect Bodies” at Perfect Bodies Auto Collision, Brooklyn
If you’re looking for an opportunity to get your art-viewing fix while still enjoying New York’s remaining days of seasonal warmth, chart a course to Red Hook in the next few weekends. There, in a normally unassuming concrete parking lot just two blocks from Pioneer Works (the installation’s presenter), multidisciplinary artist Bosco Sodi has sited an array of soulful spheres fired from the local clay of Oaxaca, where he maintains the Mexican branch of his studio. The work builds on the concerns prevalent in Sodi’s just-opened solo exhibition at Kasmin (on view through November 12): the timelessness of the earth, the synthesis of Minimalism with Land Art, and the progression of art-making from ancient civilizations to contemporary practice.
