Exile and Gallery Onetwentyeight are pairing up this fall to re-install a piece two decades after its original appearance with Redrawing Sol LeWitt, Wall Drawing 731, running at the NYC space from September 6 to October 12.
Exile, having recently packed up in Berlin and set up camp at Gallery Onetwentyweight’s Rivington St. space, is collaborating with the gallery to re-exhibit the work in its original space, 21 years after its first and only installation.
The tripartite piece, intentional to this original Rivington St. site, extends itself over three walls of the space, creating a visual dialogue of opposing colours and parallel shapes in the empty space between. With everything, including the setting, identical to its 1993 exhibition, Redrawing Sol LeWitt becomes as much a meditation on time as it is a sensory experience – a way of asking, can you ever really step into the same river twice?
