Henry Saxe’s aluminum ring sculptures reflect a tension between the enclosure of the whole structure and the relative freedom of motion of the individual components. These aluminum works are multi-positional pieces, their configuration and shapes are limitless.
In mathematics, the Borromean rings are three simple closed curves in three-dimensional space that are topologically linked and cannot be separated from each other, but that break apart into two unknotted and unlinked loops when any one of the three is cut or removed.
