Memory contemporary international sculpture

7 October - 3 December 2011

MEMORY brings together seven European artists and one each from the UK and America: Steve Goddard (UK), Andreas Blank (Germany), Leonardo Drew (US), Nicola Samori (Italy), Roberto Almagno (Italy), Spazio Visivo (Italy), Kaarina Kaikkonen (Finland), Rossana Zaera (Spain), and Mar Arza (Spain).

From Roberto Almagnoʼs beautifully-crafted abstract forms made from wood, to the visceral approach of Steve Goddardʼs pieces made of pigment, horsehair and clay, the exhibition showcases the diversity that exists in contemporary sculpture today. Each artist takes a radically different approach to their work, using different materials, aesthetic frameworks and concerns. All deal with “memory” in distinct yet equally powerful ways, and it is the poetic sensibility they share that creates a sense of unity.
