Martin Boyce at the Museum für Gegenwarts- kunst Basel (Museum of Contemporary Art, Basel), the artist’s first solo museum show, focuses primarily on sculpture and installation but will also present photography and wall works covering a fourteen-year period. The exhibition includes complete and reconfigured installations such as the multipart Do Words Have Voices—exhibited for the first time since its original showing—for which Boyce received the prestigious Turner Prize in 2011 (ROOM 3), as well as a newly arranged group of works that were exhibited at the 2009 Venice Biennale under the title No Reflections. This latter group includes, for instance, a pathway of concrete stepping stones, a black geometric chandelier, and a mass of fallen leaves which, upon closer inspection, are seen to be precisely designed, cut and folded objects (ROOM 6).
