It’s not just the white-painted backdrop that shows up these roughly hewn, hand-gouged and naturally weathered pieces in a fresh light, but the context and expectations that come with experiencing such monumental Moores in a gallery setting. The surroundings send the sculptures into an entirely different experiential stratosphere of scale, one that’s normally reserved for artistic titans such as Richard Serra, to name the only other sculptor to have necessitated a near complete dismantling of this building’s structural integrity.
