Lehmann Maupin

Lehmann Maupin is pleased to present Balance Fountain, New York-based multidisciplinary artist Nari Ward’s first solo exhibition in London. The exhibition precedes a major European museum exhibition to be announced in the coming months.

Adopting a distinctly spiritual approach, Balance Fountain probes the unseen forces that shape both unique cultures and global society, exposing ritual as a structural artistic device.

The presentation features a series of new copper panel works, a selection of sculptures, and a large-scale floor installation, each composed of objects adjacent to ceremonial practice or devotional behavior.
