Sheila Hicks installs giant fibre sculptures inside Jaffa’s Magasin III
Sheila Hicks’ vibrant sculpture ‘Saffron Sentinel’ has taken up residency inside art gallery Magasin III Jaffa as part of a new exhibition of the American artist’s colourful work.
Migdalor – which means ‘lighthouse’ in Hebrew – brings together monumental pieces that push the boundaries of textile and colour. Taking centre stage is a colossal installation that uses 200 bundles of pure pigments, stacked from floor to ceiling to create a kaleidoscopic mound.
Elsewhere, a tactile column made from wrapped cords hangs from the Tel Aviv gallery’s double-height ceiling down to the floor, gently moving with the breeze.
