Cuban-American artist Jorge Pardo is exhibiting his sculptural chandeliers at the Victoria Miro gallery in London. The creative is renowned for his use of layering and light as a drive for the "revaluation of objects, images and architectural space."

The Victoria Miro gallery will showcase Jorge Pardo's exceptionally laser-cut and plastic sculptural chandeliers, as well as the Mexico-based artist's 3D wall art that also relies on layering and light manipulation.

What is interesting is the way the sculptural chandeliers communicate with the space. On one hand, as Dezeen describes, their intricate forms recall "natural phenomena such as animal and plant life." On the other hand, the delicate illuminating properties create an internal world that is much less tangible and somewhat seamlessly extends itself into the gallery space.
