GIANTS: BODY OF WORK
January 12th – February 28th 2018
Lazinc, 29 Sackville Street, London
This January sees globally renowned artist JR launch a multidisciplinary solo exhibition in a new space, in the heart of Mayfair, set to be the home of Lazinc, formerly Lazarides.
The artist will showcase never before seen studio plans, drawings and prototypes used to realise his GIANTS series displayed during the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games.
JR will present a unique series of studies through a collection of mixed media works, each encompassing preparatory notes, photography and architectural drawings relating to the GIANTS series. This will be a first for the artist’s GIANTS series outside of private studio visits. JR created a series of new 3D outdoor sculptures across Rio de Janeiro, depicting athletes whose identity was blurred behind the “perfect motion” of an instantly recognisable Olympic event: diving, high jump and swimming.
