Anthony James: Repose/Reimagined from Opera Gallery

From 19 Sep till 30 Oct, in partnership with Opera Gallery, Anthony James Repose/Reimagined sculptures will be on display at South Beach for viewing.


Opera Gallery presents Repose/Reimagined – Anthony James’ display of light and matter. Held in conjunction with the Formula 1 Grand Prix, Repose/Reimagined features a Ferrari car sculpture – an ode to everyone’s long-awaited
race car action.

“Repose” is the state of eternal rest and tranquillity. Anthony James took the idea of “repose” and shaped it into a Ferrari body, casting it in copper, a material intentionally and energetically conductive. In its original incarnation, the Ferrari is a exemplary automotive specimen—the apex of power, form, function, and aesthetics. Yet, here it is memorialised in performative stillness—monumental memories of its own pasts. The sculpture, stripped of its speed and rhythm, is lying in heavenly serenity.


“Reimagined” – Combining cutting-edge techniques and concepts of Euclidian geometry, Anthony James creates his own visual language with light, prompting us to dive right into his world of infinite mirrored precision and futuristic paragons. They are ethereal, but casual; minimalist, yet intricate. As the light sculptures stand in the middle of the bustling city, they are juxtaposition to; a silent debate with familiar firmament, just by setting the night ablaze with something as simple as “light”.

Join us in an exploration of the ways in which Anthony James experiments with and sculpts the intangible, bringing light and matter together in a cosmic fusion of art, science and mathematics here at South Beach Level 1.
