Pangaea Sculptors’ Centre artists’ residency 2015

Which one of these is the non-smoking lifeboat is an exhibition of work created during a 6 week residency at the Pangaea Sculptors’ Centre in Hackney, Londonpangaea-sculptors-centre-01

Seven sculptors worked on site to create the three-dimensional artworks over a period of six weeks. The residency included two shows; the first during the Art Licks Weekend, Taking Shape, with Which one of these is the non-smoking lifeboat as the culmination of the residency.

Jamie Fitzpatrick‘s subverted ‘monuments’ combine classical sculptural elements – busts of Royalty, horses  – with bright colours and oversize features. They remind me of the papier mâché carnival figures from Tintin and the Picaros (based on those with oversize hands and heads found in Latin America).  A crown is just a hat that lets the rain in normally functions as a fountain, but whilst I was there it had been switched off.

What You Know About Fresh! by Byzanta Harlow

Details of Emily Motto‘s An Arena. I enjoyed her tactile use of materials, and had really liked the installation of hers that I’d seen at ICA London.

I was interested to see PSC were selling a number of small works and limited editions relating to the show, something I’d never seen in relation to sculptural installation. PSC-limitededitions
