Alex Pentek: Implicate and Explicate Order

Alex Pentek: Implicate and Explicate Order  | Friday 24 May  – Saturday 8 June 2019 | Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre

Luke Murphy’s contemporary dance performance Carnivore (24 and 25 May at Uillinn) includes large scale, sculptural elements by artist Alex Pentek. Implicate and Explicate Order is an installation of Alex’s new origami and scientifically inspired sculpture. Exploring ideas of connectedness, these ongoing themes and forms give context to some of the visual elements created for the Carnivore performance.

With a multi-faceted sculptural practice, Alex Pentek’s body of work covers a variety of materials from large scale public realm sculptures in steel, to gallery based paper works. Alex’s paper sculptures blur the boundary between engineering, magical trick, Mobius form and mathematical construct. Often creating new origami folds for this work such as his star-shaped pattern and stellated icosahedron (which you can download to make here; http://alexpentek.com/studio/), in designing his paper-sculptures, he uses a mixture of mathematics, drawing, 3D computer modelling and precise origami paper folding techniques.

Alex is also a drummer in a blues/jazz band and is drawn to Eastern ideas of memorised response; a non-western approach that values a quality of knowing or understanding created through rhythmic repetition.
