Eva LeWitt: Untitled (Flora)
The new site-specific installation by sculptor Eva LeWitt adorns The Jewish Museum‘s lobby in New York: “Untitled (Flora)” draws inspiration from plantlike shapes, recalling the weekly floral arrangements of the windowsills of the lobby. At the same time, the sculpture refers to the main function of this space as a reception room and to the Warburg Mansion’s history as a family home, bringing a domestic touch to the visitor’s experience.
LeWitt’s practice often embodies the creation of site-specific installations, through which she experiments with the properties of light, weight and volume. This new work also recalls some rarely-seen drawings by influential Minimalist artist and Eva’s late father Sol LeWitt, which are part of the museum’s permanent collection on the second floor, characterised by bright colours and curvilinear lines.
