Elisabeth Frink @ Djangoly Gallery
25 November 2015 - 28 February 2016
Elisabeth Frink was one of Britain’s leading 20th-century sculptors. She created, without the aid of assistants, an impressive body of over 400 sculptures while working in a succession of studios – in London, France and finally Dorset. Throughout her lifetime Frink received many commissions for public buildings, urban environments and sacred spaces. This exhibition The Presence of Sculpture presents the stories of these sculptures from studio to place, and examines the changing demands and attitudes of commissioners as urban Britain moved from post Second-World War reconstruction to new agendas for built environments. Rarely seen studio and archive material including original plasters, photographs, film, letters and papers saved from her final studio at Woolland in Dorset, are shown along with sculptures cast in bronze, drawings and original prints.
