Terra - Jerwood Space
JERWOOD Visual Arts is presenting an exhibition entited Terra at Jerwood Space – until December 11, 2011.
Curated by Hayley Skipper and Antony Mottershead of Forestry Commission England, the exhibition explores the relationship contemporary sculpture practice shares with the environment and landscape beyond the gallery.
Terra features work by Jonathan Anderson, Edwina Fitzpatrick, Luke Jerram, Anne-Mie Melis and Owl Project.
The artists each explore contemporary sculpture practice through their owns sensory relationship with the environment and the artwork exposes these ideas through a multiplicity of unique works.
Physical form, materials and conceptual intent are often the primary languages used to interpret contemporary sculpture. However, as a discipline, sculpture also has an intimate relationship with our wider sensory experience.
The strategies and processes employed by each of the artists translate information from one form of sensory experience to another.
The range of practices included in the curatorial selection are an expansive definition of sculptural practice covering performative and installation based work that engages all of the senses, including sound and smell.
An exhibition catalogue is available. It includes a foreword written by Joy Sleeman, Lecturer and distinguished writer on Land Art.
Times: Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm; Saturday and Sunday 10am to 3pm.
