GOLDEN ARRAY: Grimanesa Amorós Creates New Monumental Light Sculpture
Commissioned by The Reliance Group and Maker Maxity.
Mumbai – GOLDEN ARRAY, a large-scale, site-specific light sculpture by artist Grimanesa Amorós has opened to the public in India at JioWorld Drive, Mumbai’s premium retail district in Bandra Kurla Complex.
Amorós’ masterpiece, GOLDEN ARRAY, was inspired by her journey through India. India’s bustling streets are synonymous with its zigzagging cable lines- a complex collection of wires powering entire cities and towns with electricity and telecommunication. Tangled, yet functional. Beyond utility, they form an integral part of the urban blueprint. This powerful imagery fascinated Amorós.
GOLDEN ARRAY adds to these many communication layers by inviting the viewer to imagine and reﬂect on the elaborate array that interconnects us. The piece will activate the skyline of Jio World Drive at Bandra Kurla Complex as a tribute to the buzzing city Mumbai.
