Statement

David Buckley is an Irish artist working primarily in sculpture. Since graduating from a Masters in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art in London, his work has been included in a number of survey exhibitions; New Contemporaries at the ICA, the Royal British Society of Sculptors, Contemporary Art Society and at the Zabludowicz Collection in London. He has also exhibited at Münster Austellunghalle and Konstnarhuset in Stockholm. He has undertaken a number of residencies - at Cité des Arts in Paris, at the Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop and Kinokino in Norway. He recently curated the exhibition Fanzines: A Cut-and-Paste Revolution at the Barbican Centre in London (2016).

David Buckley's work is about the potential for social or political agency in abstract objects. He makes installations that juxtapose the meditative qualities of abstract sculptures with more immediate or ephemeral material ‐ images, found objects or texts ‐ in order to change the register of the objects from expressive to critical. His recent work has focussed on ideas of containment and dispersal, and on investigating qualities of focus and isolation characteristic of certain kinds of object. He is interested in using that material focus as an analogue for different forms of containment (social, architectural, economic), and in trying to create contexts for objects in which ideas of containment are challenged, threatened. In doing so his work aims to create a sense of dissolution and the potential for liberation.
