An intimate group of marble sculptures by the enigmatic Swiss artist Not Vital will go on display at Ordovas in Savile Row from 10 June until 5 August, coinciding with the first major UK exhibition of Vital’s work at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (21 May 2016 – 2 January 2017), his largest museum project to date. Muntognas, meaning ‘Mountains’ in the Swiss language of Romansch, the native tongue of the artist, presents eight marble, ‘Dali stone’ sculptures made by Vital in 2013. Mined in the Yunnan province of China, the marble has been sliced open to reveal the hidden landscapes within, inextricably linking these striking sculptures to Vital’s birthplace of Sent, a tiny village in the Engadin valley of the Swiss Alps.
