Contemporary - Sculpture
Royal Society of Sculptors Member Group Show - On the Edge
Tue-Sat: 11-6pm; Sun: 10-2pm
The exhibition co-curated by Tere Chad, Caroline Russell and Emma Elliott takes a quote from the Ukrainian poet Boris Khersonsky, that has inspired debate and discussion between the exhibiting artists throughout almost a year of online meetings: ‘Every hut in our beloved country is on the edge. And to be honest, I’m on the edge too. I feel sorry for the ones at the centre, but really I’m especially sorry for the ones in the camp towers, watching the frosty distance…’
A group of artists formed by members of the Royal Society of Sculptors based in London, have gathered to make work in response to and in order to reflect upon what it means to have a sculptural practice in today’s times, in the context of war and climate change. At a time when the world is on the edge of uncertainty, how and why should we respond as artists?
