About the Author

Known for works that incorporate found and constructed elements with a unique formal, technical, and conceptual inventiveness, Carol Bove (b. 1971) stands as one of the foremost contemporary artists working today; her work has consistently challenged and expanded the possibilities of formal abstraction. On view through November 2021, are four works by the artist installed in the facade niches of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Titled Carol Bove: The séances aren't helping, it is the second in a new series of site-specific commissions for the museum.


"Masterful sculptures"--Alina Cohen "Artsy"
"This syncretism, where spirituality and illusionism suffuse, pervades every aspect of her work."--Aaina Bhargava "South China Morning Post"
"Almost in defiance of the very nature of metal, [Bove's] vividly coloured works evoke crumpled fabric, clay or even paper. Intensely tactile, they teeter between cerebral assemblages, sensual sculpture and sleek design."--Payal Uttam "Prestige"
"Giving an illusion that they are fabric, the sculptures draw the curious into contact to validate their impressions. This is the most iconic feature of her work - presenting a sharp contrast of strength and softness though they are entirely made from metal."--Cara Chen "The Standard"
"Carol Bove's work beguiles and beautifies in material juxtapositions and unexpected nuances at David Zwirner in Hong Kong."--Cara Chen "China Daily"
"Luscious, vibrant shapes that appear like folded silk or rubber, but on closer inspection are stainless steel forms..."--Evelyn Lok "Lifestyle Asia"
