Fish Lamps by Frank Gehry

Frank Gehry first produced his Fish Lamps between 1984 and 1986 using the then-new plastic laminate ColorCore. After accidentally shattering a piece of ColorCore while working on a commission for Formica, he decided to use the broken shards as fish scales by glueing them onto wire armatures. For this new group of Fish Lamps, he used larger and more jagged shards of ColorCore. Some of the lamps can be fixed vertically against a wall or pole, while others are placed on flat surfaces.

The lamps are being presented at Gagosian Beverly Hills until 14 February and at Gagosian Paris from 24 January until 9 March.
