Save Event: Alex Hoda, Hostage, at 20 Projects

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:



Alexander Dellal's 20 Projects presents ‘Hostage', a new body of sculpture by British artist Alex Hoda. Sculpture has always been about the external surface of an object but in his own words, Hoda's works ‘turn a natural process inside out.' Referencing Jean Fautrier's ‘Hostage' series of the 40's each of the new twelve figurative bronze sculptures started life as a small rectangle of nicotine gum. The masticated gum was scanned and enlarged with a 3D printing machine, with Hoda taking a traditional cast of the resulting ‘object' to translate it into bronze. Never touched by the artist's hand, the series is a product of reflex movement and technology; deliberately ambiguous it is open to multiple readings and a variety of responses.
