Sculpting Practice – Catching a Train on the Move, London 2015
Written by Marsha Bradfield & Lucy Tomlins

Fast forward twenty years: If asked to reflect back on the most pressing developments in the practice of sculpture in London 2015, what would you say? This publication responds to this question as a kind of time capsule of this historical moment, through the lens of three themes: ‘Adventures in Material and Space’; ‘Public Sculpture, Public Art’ and ‘Ambition and Afterlife’.

The present described here springs from the perspective of Pangaea Sculptors’ Centre (PSC) but also draws on the insights of peers, colleagues and associates as reflections move between the micro and the macro, from a fleeting episode in PSC’s recent residency, to scanning the wider cultural landscape, as we attempt to make sense of our lived experience as practitioners in London 2015.

Those featured include: Anthony Caro, Barry Flanagan, Byzantia Harlow, Emily Motto, Jamie Fitzpatrick, Revital Cohen & Tuur van Balen, Matthew de Kersaint Girauedeau, David Rickard, muf architecture / art, Alex Chinneck, Andrew Ranville, Marjetica Potrc & Ooze, Frances Richardson, Naum Gabo, Christine Kozlov, Anne Hardy and Heatherwick Studio.

This publication is funded by: The Henry Moore Institute, Arts Council England, The Estate of Barry Flanagan and The Cecil and Hilda Lewis Charitable Trust.
