Exhibition Dates: 1 – 25 April 2009
For COMMA, London based painter Jaime Gili animated the rear gallery and atrium with a dazzling prismatic display, reminiscent of both a Modern structure and a medieval cathedral. Gili’s works has always played on and used the strong South American relationship between Modernism and the graphic in a very open and generous manner.
Using a limited palette of coloured vinyl on the interior windows ascending seven floors, he transformed the towering atrium space at Bloomberg with trademark geometric reflections. Through the simplest of means Gili created a formal transformation of the interior workspace and rear gallery into a geometric, part decorative, part functional spectacle.
