  • Catalogue Essay

    In his ‘Mobile Chandelier 1’, Anastassiades uses light as if it were a type of geometric volume, assigning it a certain weight, and thereby making it part of the equation used to achieve balance and movement. Like Rickey’s kinetic sculpture, ‘Leaning Tower’, the rigor and seeming simplicity, achieved through the use of machine-like engineering and geometric forms, render both works more akin to Constructivism than Minimalism.
