Maria Bartuszova @ Tate Modern
20 September 2022 - 16 April 2023
This Retrospective highlights the abstract sculptures of Maria Bartuszová, who created around 500 sculptures, from small organic forms to commissions for public spaces, as well as works in the landscape, despite restrictions on her artistic life during this period.
The exhibition starts in the 1960s, when Bartuszová experimented using her own distinctive method of casting plaster by hand. Inspired by playing with her young daughter, she created abstract shapes by pouring plaster into rubber balloons – her signature material was white plaster, giving the sculptures a fragile quality.
