We are delighted to announce that the Sculpture Shock 2015 winners have been selected - Congratulations to SUBTERRANEAN winner Lynn Dennison, AMBULATORY winner William Mackrell and HISTORIC winner Hanna Haaslahti! Click HERE for info!
On Wednesday 21 January 2015 the internationally celebrated sculptor Richard Wilson RA announced the winners of Sculpture Shock 2015. The work of the three winning artists will appear in one of three environments: subterranean (the unseen world underneath our city), ambulatory (without physical confines in movement through space & time) and historic (an illustrious building in London). Each winner will receive £3,000 and a three month residency in a studio in Kensington which will culminate in a 4 day pop-up show. Now in its third and final year this ground breaking award encourages surprising site specific spatial interventions in non-traditional spaces outside the confines of the white cube. The 2015 jury includes an illustrious panel of judges including artist Richard Wilson R.A and art critic, curator and lecturer Dave Beech. Previous juries included amongst others Sarah Kent, Cornelia Parker, and Richard Cork.
On Wednesday 14 January 2015 all of nine finalists presented their work and the unique appeal of the site specific in a dynamic slam style series of 7 minute back to back talks at the RBS. If you missed the Slam Talks catch up online and download the talks here!
