'Not By Half '
Sculptor Richard Wilson, probably best known for his large-scale architectural interventions, will be talking about how his work has progressed from ‘20:50’, his infamous room full of oil for the Saatchi Gallery in 1987, to his most recent installation ‘Hang on a Minute Lads ...’ which involved balancing a bus on the roof of the De La Warr Pavilion at Bexhill on Sea.
“My fascination with architectural and perceived space has resulted in a 30+ year body of work where our comprehension of space is questioned and subverted. These interventions are characterized by my concerns with size and structural daring” (Richard Wilson)
