Modern Art are pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new work by Eva Rothschild. This will be Rothschild’s fifth solo exhibition with the gallery.


Eva Rothschild’s work has developed out of the legacy of the modernist sculptural tradition, in particular the formal languages of such artists as Barbara Hepworth and Eva Hesse, both of whom, in their own ways, were committed to studying sculpture’s capacity to create bodily encounters in space. Similarly, for Rothschild, scale, mass, volume and materiality are central components of her sculptural lexicon, but so are humour, illusion and ritual. Rothschild’s work - which is made out of materials such as jesmonite, Perspex, steel, leather, incense and beads - is concerned with how certain qualities of corporeality might be invested with spiritual meaning, and the precise point at which narratives might arise out of formal arrangements.

Rothschild is internationally recognised for her translations of these questions into both intimately scaled work as well as large sculptural interventions, both for indoor and outdoor public space. Her exhibition at Modern Art emphasises the breadth of her practice, encompassing work of varying scales and production techniques that respond to the space of the gallery, while also honing in on the specificity of her distinctive visual vocabulary.
