Omer Arbel is an artist, designer and architect based in Vancouver and co-founder of the lighting firm Bocci. Arbel experiments with architectural material and form, creating works that he rather numbers in the order of their creation, instead of giving them a title. The exhibition presents four architectural projects that are currently being built through a series of drawings, prototypes, videos, large-scale models and sculptural applications of different materials. Included in the show are five concrete sculptures distributed inside and outside of the Aedes spaces.
These prototypes express the architect’s interest in the flowing nature of poured concrete and how it can be used. The exhibition provides an insight into Arbel’s practice to cultivate a fluid position between the fields of architecture, sculpture, invention and design.
