OPEN CITY LINK
SEPTEMBER 7 - OCTOBER 5, 2010
17-19 Davies Street
London W1K 3DE
"This is the latest in a new series of sculptures for outdoor spaces in which Whiteread has substituted robust materials such as stone and concrete for the more fragile plaster, rubber, and resin of many of her best-known works. It comprises five approximately cubic forms of varying size and surface texture, arranged in a straight line. Small linear cutouts disrupt the otherwise smooth surface of each cube. Given that the work is intended for an outdoor space, changing light and shadow becomes another implicit and highly subjective dimension in the work. Two such commissions have been completed to date – in Stockholm, Sweden, and Dallas, Texas – and in subsequent works Whiteread is continuing to develop and refine her forms and use of media."
Art Now: Pablo Bronstein: Sculpture Court Commission
8 May – 17 October 2010
"Drawing on the history of pleasure gardens and responding to the architecture of the Millbank site, Pablo Bronstein has transformed Tate Britain's outdoor sculpture court into a formal landscape. Through the placement of plants, seating and statuary Bronstein directs our movements and encourages the visitor to be considered as an aesthetic element within the setting. The project culminates in an outdoor play specially choreographed for the garden."
