Richard Tuttle

Fusing sculpture, painting and poetry together with textiles. Colours mutate, canvas becoming a geometric abstraction. Sprockets, wires and stitching are part of his lyrical visual syntax. He choreographs the audience – we might stub our toe on an object nestling against the wall or be arrested by a construction’s ascent into space.

New Babylon – Constant Nieuwenhuys

The model designs of playful cities and the creative human being at the centre. Man would be liberated from manual labour and dedicate himself to the development of creative ideas. Interweaving and intersecting each element, joining and conversing. A series of linked transformable structures, perched above ground. A post-revolutionary world.

Gravity takes its toll when adding weight. Unpolished, it could be disturbed by a simple knock or push. Holding itself in the moment. Two materials forced into a moulded relationship, to work together, to balance. Too heavy to hold itself without support.

Dan Shipsides

Reflecting a life of climbing, relationship to space and participatory engagement. Seek to create open narrative through that experience. Often using the contribution of others in multiple mediums. It draws from, responds to, documents or reflects the experience of seeing, being and doing whilst linking to social, political, environmental or historical contexts. Large-scale, noticeable from afar, making a statement.

Tadashi Kawamata

Sculptural installations made from mass-produced materials like wooden pallets, balsa wood, corrugate tine, and cardboard. Suggests a links between socio-economic status and architectural styles. Influenced by his childhood interest in urban spaces, often living near his site-specific installations.
