‘I Am – Dancer’ was exhibited in Andrew Rogers’ 2019 solo show ‘frisson‘ at Dominik Mersch Gallery. This work harnesses a corporeal rhythm akin to a dancer’s body, abstracted into an impossible pirouette. Rogers is largely known for his open-form abstract sculptures that curl and swell with material vitality, suggesting a sense of transformation. The National Gallery of Australia notes how his work is “informed by the rugged expression of Auguste Rodin, the organic abstraction of Henry Moore, and the cool conceptualism of Anthony Caro.”
Rogers is well known for his monumental land art project Rhythms of Life, which has been extensively presented on The Google Cultural Institute. His abstract sculptures have also been both exhibited and permanently located around the world. Key locations include the Gateway to the United Nations in New York, the 57th Venice Biennale, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the National Gallery of Victoria, the Australian National Airport in Canberra, and Astana in Kazakhstan as part of the Expo 2017 – Future Energy.
