Armen Agop’s sculptures repose in a secretly precarious stillness. These seemingly anchored forms consent to movement when pressed to it by our hands. Later, theyinexorably to their original position. As a result of their curved shapes, these black granite metronomes gradually slow and stop in a subtle dialogue between light and shade. A dance, sometimes giddy, unfolds on the sleek surface of these sculptures. A curious weightlessness transfigures the stone.
