Charles Robb in McClelland Sculpture Survey and Award

McClelland Sculpture Survey and Award  opens this weekend featuring Charles Robb. Robb's new major work entitled Heavy Weather, features a high-jumping athlete, surmounting a monolith. This work seeks to bring these two opposing forces together. Immovability and vaulting athleticism, assertiveness and ungainliness – this sculpture represents the fraught relationship we have with the world and its objects. The prize is to be announced this Sunday and the exhibition on until 14 July 2013. click here for further details.
