Headlining the GOMA Turns 10 summer program is ‘Sugar Spin’, featuring over 250 contemporary artworks exploring light, space, architecture and the senses. From brand-new immersive works to large-scale visitor favourites, the exhibition reflects our complex connections to the natural world with an explosion of colour, sensation and spinning delights.
Major new artworks include Nervescape V 2016, a multi-coloured landscape of synthetic hair by Icelandic-born artist Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir (aka Shoppy), and the electrifying HEARD 2012 by American sculptor and performance artist Nick Cave — a group of vibrant sculptural horses brought to life by dancers.
‘Sugar Spin’ also marks the return of Carsten Höller’s much-loved Left/Right Slide 2010, spiralling visitors from the top floor of GOMA to the bottom; Ron Mueck’s oversized woman In bed 2005; Olafur Eliasson’s interactive installation of thousands of white Lego pieces, The cubic structural evolution project 2004; and Céleste Boursier-Mougenot’s musical installation of live finches, from here to ear (v.13) 2010.
