Wed – Sat 10-6pm

Closed: 23 Dec - 4 Jan 2011


Preview: Sat 4 Dec 2010

2-4pm (in association with Deptford Gifted weekend)


BEARSPACE will host a room of wonderful objects on plinths displaying multiples to singular pieces, assemblage to porcelain. This exhibition forms a snapshot of current trends in new types of sculpture, bringing together small works by emerging artists concerned with assemblage and sculpture. Artists have been selected from several art colleges in 2010, as well as a range of artists familiar to BEARSPACE these include; Blue Curry, Jonathan Trayte, Ellie Doney, Luke Twigger, Krister Klassman, Jasmina Cibic and Wayne Lucas. Each piece resembles a particle of the artist’s full practice. Some artists work only through the medium of sculpture for others sculpture forms only a part of their process.
