Richard Serra

Two Plate Prop, 1986

Hot rolled steel plates, 2 elements : 182.8 × 304.8 × 5 cm, 137.1 × 137.1 × 5 cm

Richard Serra’s minimalist, monumental sculptures maintain a close relationship with their physical environment. Positioned in a corner of the room where two walls meet, Two Plate Prop consists of two steel plates that seemingly precariously balance on each other, in a masterful defiance of the laws of gravity. Part of a series from 1968 titled Prop, this work explores the raw qualities of the material and the possibilities of abstract sculpture, while proposing new ways of perceiving space.

Richard Serra

Born in San Francisco (California), United States, in 1939
