Phyllida Barlow: Rig at Hauser and Wirth, London.
Inspired by the everyday objects of the city, Barlow has created a group of works that brings the cacophony of the gallery’s external surroundings inside. The urban congestion is ‘captured like something wild or feral’, says Barlow, and is evolved into a purely physical object, stripped of any symbolic context and resituated within the gallery. The verticality and mass of the sculptures, broken up by the staccato application of brightly coloured paints and draped fabrics, takes over the entire building from the basement to the attic.

Mathematics: A beautiful Elsewhere at The Cartier Foundation, Paris.
“Mathematics: A Beautiful Elsewhere”, opening at the Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art this week, presents work created in the nameof mathematics, bringing the science to a level where viewers can see, hear, and interpret the complex subject in a tangible way. The Cartier Foundation and the Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (IHÉS) with sponsorship by UNESCO, have brought together six leading mathematicians and eight artists who have previously collaborated with Cartier – artists Jean-Michel Alberola, Raymond Depardon Et Claudine Nougaret, Takeshi Kitano, David Lynch, Beatriz Milhazes, Patti Smith, and Hiroshi Sugimoto worked to create works with math enthusiasts Sir Michael Atiyah, Alain Connes, Nicole El Karoui, Misha Gromov, Cedriv Villani, and Don Zagier.
