How much does a sculpture weigh? And if we cannot lift it, if we cannot even touch it, how important is its weight to the way it looks and the way we understand it? Heft is an exhibition of a dozen challenging sculptures by contemporary artists, selected by sculptor Tony Hayward. It examines the significance of weight, density, and tactile qualities, in what are primarily visual objects. It includes heavy sculptures, some of which look heavy and some of which look light; and light sculptures, some of which look light, and some of which… look heavy. The project is a collaboration between the Winchester Discovery Centre, Hampshire Sculpture Trust and Winchester School of Art; the exhibition was devised by John Gillett and selected by the artist Tony Hayward. Featuring artists: Thomas Adank, Jason de Caires Taylor, Maurice Citron, Sophia Olivia Clapham, Katayoun Dowlatshahi, Noemie Goudal, Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva, Caroline Holt, Julia Kubik, Liane Lang, Philip Morris, Myles Painter, Nicholas Rena, Gavin Turk, Fabien Villon
