New artwork by Pedro Reyes entered the Lewben Art Foundation's collection

The Lewben Art Foundation has acquired new artwork by Mexican artist Pedro Reyes – bronze sculpture "Versus Machina". Recently exhibited at the Lisson gallery, artwork will now travel to Lithuania. "Versus Machina", in which a figure impales a robot with a spear, perhaps echoing the pose of St George vanquishing a dragon or antiquity’s dynamic ensemble of Laocoön and his sons, is the fantasy of humanity triumphing over technology.
