Sculpture In Public: an exhibition of sculpture in the workshop

We are happy to announce a WBG London Projects exhibition, produced with William Benington Gallery, Sculpture In Public is a group exhibition of sculpture in the space that was my London Workshop from 2009-2017.

The five artists included in Sculpture In Public share an affinity for a material reality, grounded in physical objects, each of them often experimenting with or adapting industrial processes within their practice.

Sculpture In Public explores exactly that; how an artwork or the perception of an artwork changes once it is engaged with by the public. Balmforth, Capper, Chinneck, Hart & Zealey each make work that is often intended to live outside of a gallery environment while not necessarily conforming to the traditional ideas of “Public Sculpture”.

The location of the exhibition is also significant, an ex-MOT centre, re-appropriated into an artists’ studio, now takes on a brief new life as an exhibition space – its roller doors lifted wide to welcome in the public – before it is once again closed away, to be demolished and make way for new private residential properties. A narrative history of Hackney Wick in one building.
