Kohei Nawa

Categories SculpturePosted on

In his series Swell, japanese sculptor Kohei Nawa uses animal figurines as molds, layered with heavy coats of foamed polyurethane. The transformed surfaces serve as a metaphorical investigation into perception, using the tactility of materials to emphasis the ways in which we encounter objects in our daily environment.

Fiona Banner

Categories Installation, SculpturePosted on

Much of Fiona Banner’s work explores the problems and possibilities of written language. Her early work took the form of ‘wordscapes’ or ‘still films’ – blow-by-blow accounts written in her own words of feature films, (whose subjects range from war to porn) or sequences of events. These pieces took the form of solid single blocks of text, often the same shape and size as a cinema screen. Banner’s current work encompasses sculpture, drawing and installation but text is still at the heart of her practice. She recently turned her attention to the idea of the classic, art-historical nude, observing a life model and transcribing the pose and form in a similar vein to her earlier transcription of films. Often using parts of military aircraft as the support for these descriptions, Banner juxtaposes the brutal and the sensual, performing an almost complete cycle of intimacy and alienation.

Kimberly Clark

Categories Installation, SculpturePosted on

Kimberly Clark present the hedonistic but also deeply disturbing image of an exaggerated nightlife, on the borderline of excess. Although separated by two decades, their installations and sculptures evoke the common idiom of the first novels by the New York writers Brett Easton and Jay Mclnerney and the relentless New York clubbing race of the ’80s.
