SIOBHÁN HAPASKA [solo-exhibition] John Hansard Gallery, December 15, 2018 – February 9, 2019
Siobhán Hapaska (b. 1963) is currently exhibiting at John Hansard Gallery in Southampton, UK:
”Across the sculptures on display, Hapaska introduces a diverse array of materials, including fibreglass, concrete cloth, artificial snakeskin, aluminium, oak, charcoal powder, wax and brass. Each loaded with history and multiple readings, these materials are combined in ways that are surprising: biomorphic forms in concrete cloth reach towards one another, as if trying to touch; glossy fibreglass apples are constricted by snakeskin-veneered metal channels; a sanctuary lamp floods the room with purple light, rotating in a perpetual state of crisis.”
