Ugo Rondinone: the sun

May 9 – November 9, 2020

Ugo Rondinone has had a longstanding interest in the link between the natural world and the human condition, and his ‘sun’ series, first realized in 2016, tackles notions of temporality and the distinction between the natural and the artificial.

The work is a 16-foot-diameter ring of gilded bronze, cast from a circle of intertwined tree branches, and is sited on a hill in Storm King’s rolling South Fields. The presentation resonates deeply with the specific context of Storm King’s site, opening up further dialogue around monumentality and nature.

the sun (2018) will be on loan to Storm King for the 2020 season from the artist; Gladstone Gallery, New York and Brussels; and Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Zurich and New York.
