CAREL VISSER: COUNTERBALANCE
Over 37 years ago, in 1978, Sir Nicholas Serota directed the first major retrospective of Carel Visser (b. 1928, The Netherlands) in Britain at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in London. Organised by Clive Adams it then travelled to the Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol and the Third Eye Centre, Glasgow. Now, in 2015, The Mayor Gallery, in collaboration with Borzo gallery, Amsterdam, is presenting Carel Visser in London with a selection of sculptures, drawings and collage assemblages from 1951 to 1998, including works from his notable Salami and Double Form series.
