Xavier Mascaró with the Guardians at the Saatchi Gallery in London.
Departure, the first UK solo exhibition of artist Xavier Mascaró (pictured). Highlights include: an installation of boats made from bronze and iron “which are evocative of long-forgotten shipwrecks”; iron portraits of a young woman from the Eleonora series “reminiscent of the profiles on ancient coins”; delicate metal works “resembling votive figures from his Idols series”; and his Guardians series (pictured), of 10 feet high rusted iron warriors “inspired by medieval armour and ancient Egyptian and Greek art”. The latter being the first outdoor installation by the Gallery since moving to Chelsea. The show runs from 3 September until 5th October at The Saatchi Gallery, Chelsea, London. 01 September 2014.Add to Lightbox Download
