Exhibition In Brazil
In November 2010 William Pye shipped five water sculptures to Brazil for a major exhibition in Sao Paulo entitled "Agua na Oca" on the theme of water. The exhibition is held in the OCA building designed by Oscar Niemeyer in the 1950s. Natural light floods into this vast shallow dome through portholes punched around the perimeter. William Pye is the only British artist exhibiting there and the only one to incorporate water - all other exhibits simulate or represent water by various means. Each of the five sculptures says something about the way water behaves: vortex, reflection, laminar flow jets, coanda effect and water activity in a double skinned transparent dome that can be viewed from inside and out. The exhibition is on until June 2011.
