‘I feel sculpture is an important meditation on our material world, a proposal for a physical confrontation between object(s) and viewer. While communication, friendship, fiscal transaction, the consequences of conflict feel increasingly elusive in our contemporary relationship to substance, sculpture remains a tangible staging ground for moments of physical encounter. I am both very honoured and thrilled to be part of an exhibition that is focusing on this kind of investigation.’
