Join us for an intimate and conversational tour of Trickster Figures: Sculpture and the Body, exploring the next chapter in 21st Century British Sculpture.

Trickster Figures presents the next chapter in the story of British sculpture, bringing together a selection of work by eleven contemporary artists. The exhibition explores the body’s newly configured relation to the world which involves increasingly fluid movement between binary systems, technology, human forms, animals, identities, and the environment.

Encompassing sculpture in its widest sense, the exhibition includes play, touch and sound. Works made from crab shells, tree roots, shopping bags, and hosiery sit alongside a dance floor and a water fountain. Discover elements that change and grow, sculptures that are made to be worn, and things that will never be finished.
