Sotto Voce at Dominique Lévi London

The abstract white relief is the common denominator of the show Sotto Voce currently at Dominique Lévy Gallery in London. Sotto Voce will take your breath away, guiding the spectator through they history and progression of the abstract white relief.

Featuring works by Henri Laurens and Sergio Camargo, Sotto Voce also displays works by Jean Arp, Ben Nicholson, Lucio Fontana, Piero Manzoni, Enrico Castellani, Fausto Melotti, Günther Uecker, Luis Tomasello, and Mira Schendel, among others.

Sotto Voce is an important exhibition not just because it explores a wide timeframe, from the 1930s – ‘70s but because it demonstrates how the language of the abstract white relief was expounded internationally by artists at the forefront of their respective movements, ranging from Surrealism to the Zero Group, Spatialism to Minimalism, and Conceptual Art to Constructivism.

It might be for the purity of the white sculptures and canvases, the unfolding of figuration and the harmonious constructions on the canvases but the message of the show is strong and inevitably captures everybody’s attention.
