From Artists Space press release:
Energia is a living sculptural installation by Robert Gero. Gero combines nearly pure chemical elements with organic material such as seeds and living plants. His installations demonstrate a command of mass and space reminiscent of Brancusi while incorporating a philosophical sensibility of their own. Energeia incluces over 100 individual sculptures creating a total environmental experience. The title is from the Greek term meaning "actuation of life."
The exhibition was accompanied by a brochure with reproductions of the artist's work and an essay by Buzz Spector.
