NEWS FLASH: NEW HISTORIC VENUE! Read more

Joanna Sands, winner of the Historic category of Sculpture Shock 2014, has moved into the studio and is now hard at work preparing for her site specific spatial intervention in the Chapel at The Asylum! The Asylum, in Peckham, is London’s most extensive complex of 19th century almshouses and was originally known as the Licenced Victuallers’ Benevolent Institution Asylum. 

Sands started making large sculptural installations in abandoned buildings and squats in 1993, often using found materials, altering and referring to the spaces they inhabited. Making visually simple changes Sands’ work subtly subverts the viewer's spatial expectations. Each piece of work becomes an intervention into the space it inhabits and refers to the spatial qualities and architectural characteristics of the surrounding environment.
