Lee Ufan, 'Relatum (Iron Field)', 1969/1994/2018.

With a strong theoretical underpinning to his work, Lee Ufan is best known as one of the most prominent artists of the Japanese avant-garde Mono-ha movement. His practice focuses on using raw, natural, and industrial elements, and in his sculpture Relatum, these are also at play. Conceptualised in 1969, the work, which will be installed personally by the artist, uses the earth as its base, with subtle steel wires reaching to a height of four feet.
