To be honest this is a mixed bag of sculptural works, all on sale through Sotheby's and using the grounds of Sudeley Castle in the Cotswolds as a back drop. There could have been more radical works on show, and the 'textile art' bug, just looks awful. At this time, in days like these, the curators could have made more of a statement regarding the state of play of international sculpture..?
Here's the press release..'Sotheby’s is delighted to announce an exclusive collection of leading designers and artists for MATERIAL WORLDS, its second outdoor selling exhibition in collaboration with Sudeley Castle, from 28 July to 30 September 2011. The exhibition brings together cutting-edge, one-off and limited edition works in strikingly different materials by 11 artists and designers, including Tord Boontje, Amanda Levete, David Adjaye, Ingo Maurer and Paul Fryer. Set amongst the romantic ruins of Sudeley and its award-winning gardens, the works will challenge the boundaries of Design, Art and Craft.' .......yeh, right, viva la Revolucion!..
