Notionally sculpture is an ever shifting conflation of form, volume, space, light, image, context – elements marshalled to give shape to an idea, a resolution of a particular line of enquiry.
But what does it mean to give agency to material itself, to follow the material and to act with the materials? Both intuitively and counter-intuitively, to follow the material means to enter a true maze of potential meanings, where one encounters terms as matter, materiality, ‘stuff’, substance or medium, and where the properties of materials come to the fore, both physically and symbolically.
This show focuses on the disparate tension between materials and explores ‘material as object’ – through re-appropriation, counter-intuitive physics and a questioning of conventional status – and suggests that restless experimentation, and evasion of resolution, is at least as compelling as the statement of a ‘finished’ object.
