Arnaldo Pomodoro at Storm King Art Center 

Marlborough Gallery is pleased to announce that Storm King Art Center has acquired The Pietrarubbia Group: The Foundation, The Use, The Relationship (1975-1976) by Arnaldo Pomodoro (b. 1926). The work is a gift from patron Herbert Kayden, MD in memoriam of his late wife, Gabrielle Reem, MD. The work was exhibited at Storm King Art Center in 1977 on Museum Hill and it will be permanently installed there in the coming weeks.  Located in Mountainville, New York, the world-renowned Storm King Art Center features in its collection large-scale sculptures by preeminent artists such as Maya Lin, Richard Serra, Louise Nevelson, and Alexander Calder. Additionally, a temporary exhibition and installation program dots its 500 acres of rolling hills, fields, and woodlands.

Pomodoro’s architectonic sculptures are marked by an exploration of the themes of time and memory and an engagement with primary geometric shapes. First exhibited at the Marconi Studio in Milan, Italy in 1976, The Pietrarubbia Group: The Foundation, The Use, The Relationship is one of Pomodoro’s essential works. It is comprised of two heavy gates, incised with ponderous markings, opened with some effort by the viewer to a platform. Inspired by the artist’s childhood village–now almost uninhabited–The Pietrarubbia Group: The Foundation, The Use, The Relationship is suggestive of civilizations lost to history.
