EXHIBITION

Siobhán Hapaska

28 September - 25 November 2007

This is Siobhán Hapaska's first solo exhibition in the UK since her acclaimed show at the ICA in 1995. Her sculptures incorporate extraordinary objects from palm trees to buffalo skulls, goat skins to old socks. They create metaphors reflecting on the fundamentals of life, unearthing the unsaid and the troubling.

Hapaska’s sculptures of the mid 1990s had highly finished metallic fibreglass surfaces. Her new works reflect on how things have changed since. Their scale is larger than human; themes of fertility and potential abound in Dry Spring which uses copper pipe and flowers.

Politics, technology, speed, travel and nature are all referenced within the work, but ultimately viewers are encouraged to open their minds to the space her sculptures leave for imaginations to take hold.
