Visiting hours every Saturday in September from 3 to 6pm
Opening on the 5th of September from 3 to 6pm
Lucy Teasdale (*1984) is a British-German sculptor. She lives and works in Berlin. She is interested in playing with & reinterpreting sculptural motifs. A recurring theme in her work is the struggle to show movement within a static sculpture. At the moment she is working on a series of sculptures based around the idea of turning points of history – a reaction to the currently often heard phrase “In these unprecedented times…” For this exhibition she will be showing her new work “1848- Year of Revolutions”, which was produced during her month at Framed process as well as a selection of other works.
About the exhibition:
For this exhibition Lucy Teasdale will be showing her new work “1848- Year of Revolutions”, which was produced during her month at Framed process. In it a standard bearer brandishes his banner, swirling it in an enormous circle above his head. This figure repeats, so that the sculpture is formed out of three tumbling figures arranged on top of one another. What in one figure could have been a heroic step forward becomes instead a twisting circular movement. Is there progress as the figures move upwards? This question remains open.
It’s startling to realize how many sculptures show heroic figures. In this exhibition a number of Teasdale’s works look at this topic. There are reinterpreted sporting trophies, battling saints and over-elevated dignitaries. In addition to the cast works, a number of clay models are on display providing a look into the studio process.
