The Landcraft Garden Foundation in Mattituck’s 2024 season of Sculpture in the Garden will feature the work of acclaimed Cuban-American artist Jorge Pardo. The fourth annual outdoor exhibition will be on view at Landcraft Gardens from June 8 through October 26 and is curated by artist Ugo Rondinone.

Pardo is internationally known for his sculptures, installations, and paintings that explore their own functionality within architecture and landscape. For Landcraft Gardens, he will present three circular mosaic sculptures and a chaise lounge. Comprising hundreds of multicolored ceramic tiles produced in Guadalajara, Mexico, the 8-foot round mosaics will be installed on the grounds, nestled amid lush plantings.

Since the 1990s, Pardo has worked with mosaics that have been seen in exhibitions and for public and private commissions. This is the artist’s first outdoor mosaic sculpture and is composed of signature design elements and patterns that can be seen in prior works. The lounger, made of colorful slabs of Birch plywood with automotive acrylic enamel paint, is a collaboration between Pardo and British artist Liam Gillick, who have known each other for the past 30 years.

“Jorge Pardo pursues the labyrinthine paths of sculpture’s long history, producing works that reflect an altogether contemporary state of mind while drawing liberally from modernist, ancient, esoteric and popular lineages,” Rondinone said. “His unique polymathic sensibility in art, design, and architecture has allowed him to produce works that connect all ways of making, with the archetypal forces that bind the craftsperson’s labor to the universe-shaping mechanisms that bring the world into being.”
