Rachel Kneebone @ V & A

1 April 2017 - 14 January 2018

Rachel Kneebone’s sculpture ‘399 Days’ – originally shown at White Cube in 2014 – is a towering colossus made of porcelain tiles and writhing limbs, and is going to look qute spectacular amongst the objects of Gallery 50a at the V&A. Three other sculptures will also be presented in the Hintze Sculpture Galleries in Gallery 21. Kneebone’s work is an ongoing exploration of the human condition. Her complex tableaux of organic, architectural and geometric forms use the language of classicism laced with surrealism. They are sublime echoes of life’s cycle from emergence and ecstasy to mourning and loss.
