Kris Ruhs Labirinto

7th april 1995 - 30th april 1995

Iron is the material Kris Ruhs starts with to make new shapes and meanings. And it is in iron that he offers us his version of the most ancient of architectural legends: the labyrinth. A sea of iron making up a continuous landscape which the artist compares to the ocean's incessant rhythm: “the labyrinth is a rhythm and it is like a sea”.
As we travel the labyrinth, lost in a shape, a continuous journey, iron becomes the landscape: “the metal takes you on a journey, “the maze takes you on a voyage.”
The exhibition presents 143 elements forged by hand one by one. The panels are assembled and used in infinite compositions, according to each person's imagination.
Building elements: from the panel, the only piece of sculpture, to the screen, the wall, the room, the labyrinth.
A crescendo of combinations, allowing the imagination to create paths for its own shape.
