Maya Lin at Pace Wildenstein

Maya Lin’s Three Ways of Looking at Earth consisted of three very large sculpture that took up pretty much the entirety of the room they occupied. Two of the sculptures, Blue Lake Pass and 2×4 Landscape, sat on the floor and were made of sliced wood striations. The third piece, Water Line, was a suspended, net-like, wire structure that mapped the ocean floor. Each piece on its own was seemingly static, however, when grouped together in one room, the three works turned the gallery space into an interactive space in which viewers could walk in-between and around the art—an indoor playground of organic sculpture. Although the sculptures each depicted natural phenomena, they each show a very structured and logical creation, evoking the mathematical and scientific aspect of nature.

The room was overwhelming in a great way. I’d see it again.
