Royal British Society of Sculptors
2011 Bursary Award Winners
17th November - 16th December

I was invited to make a site specific piece of work for the RBS bursary award winners exhibition in London.

The RBS Bursary Awards 2011 is a showcase of current contemporary practice; ten sculptors have been presented with this prestigious award and this unique opportunity of exhibiting their work as part of a group show in London. The rich diversity of work reflects the individual artists’ background and their journey using sculpture as a means to express their ideas.
Sculpture is social. It is restless in its enquiries about space and place. And it continues to thrive. We can see all of these qualities on display in the work of the winners of this year’s RBS Bursary Awards. Ekow Eshun, August 2011
RBS Bursary Award Winners 2011: James Balmforth, David Buckley, Alex Chinneck, Mark Davey, Sian Griffiths, Julia Malle, Kate McLeod, Eric Schumacher, Katie Surridge, Hannah Wiles

There was some lovely work exhibited exploring different ideas of what sculpture is. I took some photographs at the preview evening, they're not the best but give a feel for the evening.
