Our favorites of the week #5


During the lockdown Artmarket’s teams have decided to select their favorites on Artprice’s online marketplace and share them with you. For this fifth weekly rendezvous we have picked out a selection of conceptual and minimalist works that could even be – why not – part of the same collection!

The first is a ‘Theospacial Sphere model’ by Jesus Rafael Soto, a leading light in the field of kinetic sculpture; the second is an embroidery by Jana Sterback whose title suggests that ‘Ethics and Aesthetics are one’; the third is an acrylic painting by Knut Navrot with a perfectly square organisation of multiple colored squares (Limites occ. 1, 2007) in a work that seems to reference the concrete art and ideas of Theo van Doesburg, and the fourth is jerky rhythm in vibrant green and red (titled Saccadé) painted by the pioneer of the digital and algorithmic art Vera Molnar. To find out more about these works, please visit the websites of the following galleries (in respective order): Marc Hachem, Steinek, Gimpel & Müller and La Ligne.
