Time Out Melbourne

Sculptural Matter

This event has finished

“Sculptural Matter," says ACCA associate curator Charlotte Day, "is an exhibition skirting around sculpture – literally circling it, pulling at its edges and delving into its matter and history. The exhibition reflects on the practice of sculpture at an influential moment in its evolution; showing sculpture in gestation, moving between abstraction and figuration, juxtaposing objects and their doppelgangers, and intersecting with design and display”.

Expect to see iconic works such as Richard Serra’s first film, Hand Catching Lead (1968) and Alina Szapocznikow’s chewing-gum propositions for sculptures, 'Photosculptures' (1971). A highlight is the inclusion of documenta (13) artists Thea Djordjadze and Carol Bove. Djordjadze will make a new work in situ the gallery from high-density foam and fresh plaster alongside Bove’s intriguing collection of objects in La Traversée Difficile (2008).
