Five contemporary artists, Hermione Allsopp, Dexter Dymoke, Kasia Garapich, Erika Trotzig and Poppy Whatmore are selected who respond to the traditions of sculpture, but take an alternative approach.


The works are not literal representations of the human form but made from part objects and materials. These sculptures, images and video performances refer to bodily aspects which further respond to the environment they inhabit.

Sculpture can be seen to derive from parts; from the ancient finds of antiquity, the broken parts of bodies in museums, to constructed or built forms and assemblage.  The artists use materials and processes, developing investigations in an experimental way which explore issues of failure and collapse, the absurd, and subverted notions of the traditions of the body in art. The physical is involved with the psychological. Artists’ use of materials invite questions about ourselves and the human condition, which have become more prevalent in this recent period when many of us have experienced being apart and this age of uncertainty.
